IIRC, the message was posted in the evening, and WP 2.0.3 was  
released early the next morning.  It's not a matter of people not  
bothering... more a matter of them waking up, reading their e-mail,  
and realizing that it had already been released.  It was a wholly  
inadequate amount of time for people to test out the release.  What  
we need is the following:

- announcement on wp-hackers and wp-testers about availability of a  
release candidate.  This should represent Matt and Ryan's proposed  
final version.
- people should install it as soon as they can, and report any  
critical bugs.  Matt and Ryan need to make themselves available  
during this time to screen the bug reports and commit the patches.
- once people have been running the release candidate for a period of  
not less than 72 hours, and are happy with it, it should be released.
