> And how should EXTRAVERSION be accommodated?

sed/perl/awk -- a short five-liner "bless-rc-to-final" script should do.

Ummm... no.

This whole conversation exists because "Deleting the EXTRAVERSION
setting from linux/Makefile" then making new diffs/tars was screwed
up. Doing it with a script isn't going to help this kind of problem.

I repeat: it isn't a "release candidate" if it will not match preciely
what the final tarball/patches contains. Anything else opens up the
possibility for errors to be made.
