This is not the semantic we are using. A RC is just a relese that we 
expect to become the GA if no major issue is encountered. It's not 
something like an attempt to release.


The fact that we have to check that a RC is a valid RC against the ASF 
croteria does not impede the numbering scheme we use : we keep trying to 
cut a release, with the same number, until we get it correct. At least, 
that's my opinion, which may not be shared.

In any case, it should not be a blocker...

Thanks !
