No, I don't know of a document which says otherwise. I personally also 
just to include the things which are necessary. We will update to NOTICE

Based on the other feedback we got from you I believe we should make one
more release candidate. Or do you think that is not necessary?

Yes I noticed issue directly after doing the RC 4, but thought
it might not be important enough to redo the RC since we had
the same issue with our last release and no one ever noticed it,
and it is not causing any issues.

Anyway it is fixed already and will not happen again.

Good catch, we will remove it.
