Agreed. And it is (or should be) normal process to start a new vote for
every new set of release bits. Even if 1.0.0 is just a repackaging of
1.0.0-rc4, there may be bugs in the packaging process itself (such as
we've seen in this thread, when files that were not intended to be
released were bundled in the release artefacts), so the PPMC should test
and vote again.

The vote should always refer to a particular release package (taken from
dist/dev), not to some tag in the repository.
