Can you explain what the problem is with 3.9rc2 and 3.9.0? The huge
advantage is that 3.9.0 is seen as a version update to 3.9rc2. When
3.9.0rc2 is used, 3.9.0 is *not* an update for that, and rc2 packages
will stay installed until 3.9.1 is released...
You can check this easily with the rpmdev-vercmp command:
$ rpmdev-vercmp 3.9.0rc2 3.9.0
3.9.0rc2 > 3.9.0
$ rpmdev-vercmp 3.9rc2 3.9.0
3.9rc2 < 3.9.0
So, at least for RPM packaging, 3.9rc2 is recommended, and 3.9.0rc2 is
