BTW, please tag RC2 as 3.9.0rc2 (versus 3.9rc2).  It makes building
packages for Fedora much easier.

I know you were following what was done for 3.8rcX. That was a pain. :-}

3.7 and 3.6 were all 3.X.0betaY or 3.X.0qaY.

If for some reason 3.9 doesn't get released soon, I'll need to package
the RC to get 3.9 into Fedora 25 before its GA and having a packaging
friendly tag will make it that much easier for me to get that done.

(See the community packaging matrix I sent to the mailing lists and/or

N.B. This will serve as the email part of the RC tagging discussion
action item I have.
