I suppose there are *a lot* more people trying out pre-release kernels
than CVS Emacs or pretest versions.

Another point why this pretest thing over the last weeks might have been

People don't take "this is our pretest tarball, please check it for
severe errors, this is our chance to find showstoppers before the
release" serious if there are a lot more of "this time it's for real"
pretest tarballs after that with no release in sight. That means that
pretest tarballs reach even less potential testers.

That's more psychology than anything else, but it might count
