yeah. I dont really support the even/odd release thing because even the
old 1.2/1.3/2.0/2.1/2.2/2.3/2.4 scheme _always_ confused non-insiders.
Sometimes i saw it confuse people who already understood the GPL ;-)
Furthermore it would just dillute our version numbers to encode some
information that "-rc1" indicates just as well. Insiders know perfectly
well that when -rc1 is released the merge window is closed. And what
causes -rc elongation is usually not the lack of communication towards
users or lack of testing but the lack of fixing power ...
