No offense .. the usual release procedure is to roll the tar ball, put it
on hackers for ~24hrs for limited testing, before a more formal release
... some of the folks at Redhat picks up a couple of issues within that
24hr period that needs to be fixed before that more formal release, so we
just held off, fixed those and re-rolled as rc2 in case some ppl had
picked up rc1 without the release announcements :)
