Maybe we could add a step to the release procedure in the form of a separate mail a few days before releasing an RC. Something with a title like "Heads up: RC* will be released in X days" ?

In the past years I was always notifying the packagers an instance
after a RC went online.
Some packagers complained to me to please be less intensively notified
so I reduced it to the final release notifications only since many of
them would not package RCs anyway.

Perhaps we need to split the group of packagers up into
- packagers being interested in all notifications
- packagers being only interested in final release notifications.

Side issue: quite regularly some last minute issues delays the RC
(just check the past 5 years :-) ... so X days is hard to define.

My 0.02 cents
