First of all congratulations for a great new site!
I'm thinking... Would it be a good idea to create a separate section in this forum for the new release candidate(s)? Things might easily get mixed-up because of the substantial differences between stable and rc.
Also I posted a question some time about creating tickets for every little issue and I got the impression that minor ones should maybe be posted in the forums first? Still not sure about this, so maybe you could set me straight here?
I'd suggest we get into a habit of opening a new thread on the existing "release announcements" forum (http://www.silverstripe.org/releases-and-announcements/) to gather general RC-specific feedback. But overall, each bug or question you post to the forum should state which version you're using, so I don't see the need to categorize this into another forum. Same goes for our bugtracker, where you can choose the version through a dropdown. For those "minor issues" - if you're not sure if they are actual bugs, post to the forum first - otherwise its better to get stuff into our bugtracker to avoid it being lost, regardless how minor the issue is (you can mark it as such in the bugtracker).
Thanks for your reply. There's a number of little things I posted in the ancient forum, that may become more or less lost now, so i'll make a new inventory... Hope I'll be able to contribute in a meaningfull way :-)
