There is a myth that setting the priority obligates any developer to
work on any open PR. In actuality FreeBSD is developed and
almost completely by volunteers and as such no one is really
to work on anything.

Many problems do indeed get addressed during an RC period. In
the QA cycles for 5.2 and 5.3 fixed dozens if not hundreds of
But if we waited until every single problem was fixed we would never
release any versions whatsoever.
We do the best we can given the available volunteers and beyond that
there is really no guarantee.
