Ah. I assumed that since you we're bug fixing all the time you weren't at work.

Then again, I spent too much time this week looking at the bug tracker. So, at least you were doing something useful at work.

You're right, in theory. Reality here is quite different.
The big difference between betas and RCs is that the former are not supported. The "review later" bugs will be fixed for the next release, so we can suppose there will be a RC2; as you know, delivering an RC knowing that there will be another RC defeats the definition of "(Official) Release Candidate".
I think the reasoning behind releasing RC now is this:
1) the software should be stable enough to be used live without causing major havoc (at least, that's what we hope);
2) having more people using it in real environments can help spotting the remaining issues;
last but not least, 3) if we wait any longer we'll have to keep hearing those complaining etc., and worse, if we release another beta we may get our cars burnt, and I still have to finish paying mine, so that's not a big deal.
Therefore, expect a RC2, and maybe even a RC3. (Of course, there's the remote possibility that I might also happen to be somewhat wrong. :mrgreen: )

Ah, an update is in order.
5 new
5 reviewed
2 "fix in progress" (one started Nov 28 the other Mar 29, so not sure what they're going to do with these)
12 total
I dismiss the "review later" ones (49) as they practically don't count now.

I feel we should count the two Fix In Progress that have been there for ages as Review Later. Same goes for two of the Reviewed bugs, #9855 and #9589, since they have both been there over a month.

It would make the counting nicer, since I don't think these will get done before RC1.

I don't think so for #9589. It has severity set to high and Acyd Burn just said this about it today:
