As I posted yesterday - the sole difference between this and RC2 is an
updated fedora-release-notes, so as long as we smoketest it, we can
transfer all RC2 test results to RC3, we do not need to re-run all
validation tests on RC3.

There will be an RC4 build soon, with the fix for
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=810040 included. RC3 and RC4
are essentially competing for the title of F18 Final Contender: we are
still arguing about whether it's worth the risk of taking the 810040 fix
or not. We can still choose to ship RC3, at the go/no-go meeting. Please
attend if you want to follow/take part in that debate.

If people could give RC4 as much of a once-over as possible, once it
lands - focusing on GNOME login stuff,
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA:Testcase_desktop_login for GNOME -
that would be great.
