I think you're right: nobody will care if it's buggy. This is a release candidate, in the normal sense of the word. What that means is that people can download it and complain that it doesn't have their favourite feature, but can't moan that it has a few bugs, which are just what release candidates are for. You can't even complain that it has /too many/ bugs, as no doubt various people will, since the point is that you keep having RCs until there aren't any. You /can/ complain about /bugs/ rather than missing features, if 1.0 has them. I don't think anybody will be happy if there are bugs in 1.0. I think Asa would even agree that whilst they're for testing, when they say something is bug-free, it should be - even if their are features people would like missing, or polish problems.
