If only. But, no. This is not Samba Team policy to do beta and RC
releases before they ship a stable update. Indeed, their one and only
release manager just cannot afford that.

The size of the diff would be the same. The only difference being that
what I would upload right now (if an RC release existed) would *not*
be reviewed.

Frankly speaking....I would call that just "cheating"..:-). I just
prefer being honest and ask honestly for a freeze exception, in
advance, for what I think will be very low risk.
