1) You have convinced me that we should be merging out to
the release candidate instead of into the main, so that's
2) We will need to make sure that regression tests are
frequently run on the main during the release period as
well as on the release candidate branch.
3) Any fixes made on the release candidate branch to
fix regression problems not detectible on the main
branch -- say because the main is broken for some reason --
should be merged immediately to the main. This should
be very rare.
