I do not know if it is any consolation, but if you recall, the binaries for
Win32 were not provided until right before RC2 was made. In the case of
Windows, I think that greatly limits the number of testers. There was also
the issue that we had to wait for Apache 2.0.54 to test mod_dav_svn.

I do not know how that factors into how long the soak period ought to be,
but I think that they combine to explain why there were not a lot of people
reporting the bugs that were found. This should go more smoothly with RC2.
