That is correct, but at that time RC2 was to be the final build for Sarge,
which, as I am sure you know, it turned out it wasn't.
It has always looked to me as if RC3 would happen "fairly soon"; there
never was a clear date (AFAIK there still isn't).
In hindsight the patch could probably have been applied after RC2. IMHO
however, at any time since RC2, my arguments for not applying it were and
still are valid.

I have just tested how the patch applies against the current version of
the manual and I get 100 hunks that fail (4 hunks have already been
fixed). The content of the patch has not yet really been reviewed.

Well, I don't know how you created the patch. If that was done largely
automated, it would be good if you could create a new patch after RC3.
If not, I will review the patch then.

Removed the tag.
