This being a LTS .0 release, I think we should stick to the official soak
as documented, unless someone has a really compelling reason to do
But perhaps we could try to save the extra week (May 20-27) by parallel
processing: If no showstoppers are found by May 13th, we could
optimistically begin testing / signing of the rebranded release artifacts;
if on May 20th no showstoppers were found in -rc2 and the required
signatures are collected, then we could release immediately. My only
concern with this "parallel processing" approach is the risk of confusion
that could arise if we did discover some major issue in the final week.
