Yeah, I do have the feeling that not many people really exercise our -rc
candidates. I'm not sure how to improve that. We could try to push
packagers to make them available (and I think Jonathan already does for
Debian's "experimental" track). But ultimately I think it is not a
packaging/availability question, but just that most people do not bother
until there is a real release.
