I thought it was a whole week.  I sent the announcement of -rc1 at 00:55 Last 
Thursday.  Doing all that needs to be done for the final release will take me a day.

I'm not in a particular hurry if there are issues, but I really haven't heard 
any.  The "hurry" is that we haven't released a book since Aug 28 last year.

How long do you think we should wait?
