Well, that's not true.  I think for at least the past 3.8 and current 3.9 cycle
I always tested the release candidates, and built them for various Linux

regressions introduced, it's up to the release managers to determine if such
changes are intended or not.

Can you show us an example of a release-blocker issue you reported?
