Let's make sure we agree on what a Release Candidate is.  A RC is a
build we (and the IPMC) vote on.  If the vote passes then we release.
There are no vetoes in this vote.

The RC is not the time to start looking for new bugs, or to raise
already known bugs.  If you are aware of a bug that must be fixed
before we release, then you should have already entered it as a
release-blocking issue.  You should not wait for the RC build.

So if you think that
https://issues.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=119229 is a
release-blocking issue, then you need to make your case on that now.
