It would be nice to get a Release Candidate (or Pre Release?) out with
some time before the string freeze; it's easiest for me to do the
spelling/grammar/typo checks and fixes after the first RC tarball (as it
is basically just part of my packaging for Debian workflow), but was a
little disappointing to not be able to get such trivial fixes into the

Alternately or additionally, setting up a "make dist" job on and publishing the resulting tarball somewhere would
allow me to check at arbitrary points during the release cycle and catch
things earlier.
