Oh, multiple RCs, definitely!  If we were going to get it right first time, we wouldn't need
two weeks of testing ;-)

We can cut our first release candidate on 17 August, and then we've got two weeks from 20
to 31 August to test and make as many additional builds as we think we need.  That will depend
on what we find during testing.  If the first candidate has serious flaws then we'll turn
a new one around straight away, but if it's generally stable then I'd want to slow things
down so that people can test more deeply into the features rather than resetting their systems
every day with a new build.
