Subject Re: Podlings not following ASF release policy
Date Sat, 09 Feb 2019 07:27:52 GMT
I’d agree- it’s a “feature” of GitHub and I didn’t see a way to turn off
“turning a git tag into a release”

I see that there is a API to edit a release to say it is “pre-release”
https://developer.github.com/v3/repos/releases/#edit-a-release

IMO either way it should be ok because
a) the tag is clearly indicating *-rc0 *-rc1 and so on (if not ok, it can
be set as a prerelease)
b) when a new RC is being rolled, the last RC git tag can be removed (which
should also eliminate the github “release”)
c) when the RC becomes the official release, the git tag can be replaced
and the final git tag is the release
