Listen, can you seriously imagine anybody testing the installer will first
read the developer documentation? Or (the horror!) know how to set up
their own mirror?

I'm aware RC1 means release candidate. I was not aware what release
candidate means, by the definition of the d-i team.

It should be renamed "testing-I-dare-you" for a reason, sadly.
