As an aside, this is not encouraged in our current release process.

The test practices for a release take longer than the voting period for an
RC. This directly implies that the fundamental issues must have been worked
out prior to a call to vote.

I've been fine with this interpretation, largely because it lines up with
Apache guidelines around votes: do the consensus building work up front. If
we're going to use a release vote as a time to do primary vetting, then we
should probably change our RC vote window.
