svn 1.2 resoak?

So... now that svn 1.2.0-rc2 is released, there really hasn't been any
formal discussion on this list about resetting the 1.2 "soak" time --
just some informal irc chatter.

Looking at the differences between rc1 and rc2, there were couple of
really big bugs fixed (the svn:needs-lock bug on win32, and the FSFS
race condition), and a bunch of small-to-medium-sized bugs (some crash
fixes, some various behavior fixes, some reversions of new behaviors
too).

In general, I get the feeling that we *ought* to restart the 4 week
soak from yesterday. The gut says we should give users that much time
to re-test things. But to be perfectly upfront about motivations,
Collabnet is under a really tight deadline to integrate svn 1.2 into
its next release, and we're hoping that folks might agree to a 3-week
soak instead. We don't want to compromise the quality of svn 1.2, but
we also don't want to miss the CEE release. :-)

The question I'm placing on the table is: is there some sort of extra
testing we can do so that our collective conscience doesn't feel
guilty about a 3-week resoak? I know that the Collabnet employees
have some extra bandwidth we can spend in testing, if we can get some
consensus on exactly what/how we should be testing.

Thoughts?
