RC4 was one that was published, but if you read the rest of my mail,
you'll see that there just isn't enough time to A) produce every spin
for every RC point (there were 3 RCs in one day I seem to recall), and
B) stage them somewhere that the public can get to them, and C) wait for
spin owners to read email, download giant files, and give feedback.
There just isn't enough time for this. Spin owners need to be able to
create their spin locally and test that.
Should I communicate more at each RC point, absolutely, that's on me.
But there is no chance in hell I'll be able to create 10 live images,
across 2 arches for each and ever RC.
Note, I'm not trying to blame Christoph for this current situation. Its
as much my fault as it is his. My statements above speak to the future
of how things should work, not an expectation that this is what was
being done for F12. We clearly had some communication gaps in F12 and
that's what led to this situation.
