Hi DD's,
just a thought. If during a transition it became necessary to do X as a
workaround for package Y, why not make a bug which is marked as non-RC
during the transition and then upgraded to RC after the transition. This
way each packages that has  this workaround does not have to be checked
by hand and then simply by changing the bug status, all packages are
upgraded to have the RC bug. This may already have been done, I reading
these emails offline.
