Reading the Fedora messages was interesting. I went ahead and added the
patch. Looking at the book's change log, we've made 5 changes since
-rc1. The most significant were today with changes in glibc, but
standing back and looking at all the changes together, I'm not sure if
they rise to the level of needing a -rc2 release.
What do you think? Do we need -rc2?
