I understand the point, on the other hand it's extra work for release
manager and packager which would sometimes make sense to avoid and be
so not strict in the way that RC2 step could be optional (or skipped
if no objection from community). On the other hand we can add more
steps (RC3, RC4, ...) if it will be necessary in the case of extra
complicated release.

Any comments, ideas? Thanks, Martin
