It hasn't been changed. There has bee sloppiness with the tags used for
betas and RCs in the past. We had some tags like v3.8rc1 and v3.8.0rc2.

I asked that we be consistent and expressed a slight preference for
3.11.0rc1 as it makes fedora packaging slightly less painful.

And, e.g., in fedora packages we use — per Fedora guidelines — an NVR of
3.10.0-0.1rc1 [1]. When we GA the NVR becomes 3.10.0-1 and upgrades
"just work."



[1] We've had to respin builds of a few of the RCs, so there hasn't

3.8.0-0.1rc1, 3.8.0-0.2rc1, 3.8.0-0.3rc2, ...
