To paraphrase a private mail I sent around yesterday: "We encourage
people that are testing it to do so as if it was the final release.
They'll either be testing it as rc1 or as the final, and the former is
preferable to both us and them."

Of course, if we *do* find and fix bugs, 1.7.0-rc1 doesn't have to
become the final release; we can fix the bugs prior to that happening.
 In any case the release plan (and my plan) is that we roll a final RC
a few days before the final release to pick up any remaining bug fixes
which have been merged to the branch. I'm not even opposed to doing
an rc2 in a couple of weeks at the half-way point of the soak.
