Didn't the last build show us that it is really a bad idea to propose
one build just because there is a fix for a release blocker? Browse the
archive looking for the rev. number to get a timeline idea:


A small resume: Rob's finding the missing update setting, Josef finding
two issues on Sunday, even before the RC was announced on Monday; a new
RC for those two fixes on Tuesday; now there is a fix, so yet another
RC... What if another release blockers are found tomorrow? Yet another
RC on Friday if the fix is available?

In the meantime, I propose

Crash bug 120389 has been reported on 2012-07-27, nobody notice it until
the user made some noise. This shows that something is really not
working with the way RC are proposed right after a fix is found for
a release blocker, IMHO there should be enough time (a week, for
example) to test the RC, even if a release blocker is detected, because
nothing prevent this from finding another release blocker.
