Similarly, I try to make them available in Fedora's rawhide
channel (as well as less officially as builds for current
stable Fedora and RHEL/CentOS releases¹).  I don't have a
good sense of how many git users that reaches, but I haven't
had many (or perhaps any?) bug reports from the -rc

I typically wait for -rc1 to push to rawhide, just to give a
little time to weed out the early issues.  I'd make the
Fedora QA folks mad if I pushed a git update that caused
them too much grief.

Thankfully, I can't recall ever having such a problem
(certainly nothing that most users of git would run into).
