The same holds for publishing artifacts to the maven repo. You publish version 2.5.0-incubating
( to clarify, if you are using version 2.5.0 in the poms, it should be changed to “2.5.0-incubating”
) and if the RC vote succeeds, then these get promoted ( or dropped on a vote failure ).

you are releasing 2.5.0, you would make and vote on 2.5.0RC1, 2.5.0RC2 etc etc until a vote
passes and that becomes what is released and is renamed 2.5.0.
