The only ones part of RC1 were the ones updated on or before that day.
Everything since is assumed not to be, until RC2 rolls along and
clarifies things.  This is one part of where our process sucks.

Unfortunately, RC1 never got any -announce mails, which would've made
everything a bit clearer.

Maybe my development stuff should be moved to
/releases/development/individual, to make it clear that they are not
part of the 7.2 release.  Oh well.  Learning experience. ;)
