No, currently only you and Matt have voted. And Matt already told me via
IRC that he would like to see the release notes changed as well. I'm
hesitant to cancel the vote right now. I'm hoping to get some more
feedback, since this is my first RC. But I think I'll roll out a RC2 after
christmas (which will probably stop anybody who indented to review this RC
:-)

Thanks for spotting this!
