I agree, but I don't think I qualify for a vote :-)

Can I suggest ensuring beforehand that there is a group of people who
will explicitly test the RC on some projects.  Two reasons:

1.  The RC needs some serious testing :-)
2.  The momentum for a general realization that 1.0 is dead, 1.1 was
broken, but now 1.2 is here, needs to be created so that there is a huge
move by all project using Commons CLI to actually upgrade.

Step 1 is I guess to ensure that all Apache projects upgrade ;-)

Is there an Apache announcement page so that the RC can get some
seriously extensive marketing?
