That is probably overly optimistic. I believe our policy is that the
RC process has to run for at least 4 weeks, and I do not think it has
ever been less than 6. We have not issued the RC1 yet, but hopefully
it is going to be fairly soon. Once the RC1 has been released, I'd
pick a date for your upgrade that is 6+ weeks later. Of course, you
could choose to do your upgrade based on the RC if you choose.
