Let's send the mail to dev@ first. Once the process has stabilized we could
send it to users@ instead. This would increase the number of testers and
might get more people get involved in TSVN. Since we consider all changes
we merge into the branch as stable, I don't see a problem in informing
users@ instead of dev@.

We currently have 50 votes for "Sure - I would install, test and report bugs
back to the mailing list" so that is a threshold we should be able to reach
and which assures that a RC has been tested enough.
