Perhaps a 24 hour release candidate period?  I have a staging project in
openSUSE Build Service that builds for all currently supported SuSE
products, which is a wide range of capabilities wrt Policy Kit versions,
hal vs udev, libnl, avahi versions, cap-ng, netcf, macvtap, virtualport,
yajl, ...

I can deploy a release candidate tarball to the libvirt package in this
project quickly to test building across these various SuSE products.  I
suspect there is an opportunity for some automation here as well.

Regards,
Jim
