I'm not aware of such a policy.  A pretest should fix grave bugs, so
that people could use it in day-to-day work and make sure the bugs are
indeed fixed, and we should strive to make each new release cleaner
and less buggy than the previous one, but that's about it.

I don't see any serious bugs in today's FOR-RELEASE, and a cleaner
pretest _does_ make the release nearer, IMO.
