it's usually around -rc3 that the changes really stop.
the other thing is that not all regressions get documented as such.
documented regressions are usually when a person finds the problem and needs to report it for others to research. if the developer finds the problem they just send a patch and explain why it's a regression, they don't waste their time to submit a regression report.
