Advance warning does allow interested users that would consider
upgrading to schedule time for testing before the maintenance release
comes out. This is particularly useful in helping to make a 1-week RC
period effective in picking up issues that might otherwise lead to a
brown paper bag release to fix major issues that slipped through our own
automated test coverage.
