Back on track with a Sunday afternoon release schedule, since there was nothing particularly odd going on this week, and no last-minute bugs that I knew of and wanted to get fixed holding things up.
Size-wise, this is also fairly normal, not as tiny as rc2. Easily explained by getting the fixes from both David and Greg (since networking and drivers tend to be the two single biggest parts).
And the patch distribution is quite standard too: about two thirds drivers (gpu, networking, usb, staging, sound, misc), with the rest being filesystems (mainly nfs, btrfs), architecture updates (arc, x86, arm, powerpc), networking, and Documentation.
In other words, things looks entirely normal for this stage of the release process.
