This close to the release, the release manager has a lot of work to do
already. Evaluating nearly 100 release-critical bugs two days before
the big release date is a huge additional burden.

With 9000+ packages on 11 architectures, it's been shown that it's
impossible to get the RC bug list to zero. This is especially true if
policy violations are considered release-critical.
As a result, we have to look at the remaining bugs and decide which ones
we're going to ignore for now. Policy mistakes and other problems which
affect users minimally are at the top of that list.
