    @tweise Just so I understand you correctly you are suggesting option 1. below correct?
If it is so, I don't mind make this change but it is technically not correct as folks who
would go to the website to refer the docs will see RC docs and there could not only be mistakes
in there but it could refer to features that are not yet available in the release. 
    My preference is for option 3 which is what I have implemented here. I also see the additional
work during promotion being minimal on what is already being done. Let me know if you still
want to go with option 1. and I will make the changes as I think we have had enough discussion
on this already :).
    1. Publish the RC docs to the website rightaway (for example under  https://apex.apache.org/docs/apex)
even though the RC hasn't been voted to be the final release and there can be other RCs after
    2. Don't make RC docs available under any path such as https://apex.apache.org/docs/apex/3.5.0-RC1
when the RC is in review and publish them to https://apex.apache.org/docs/apex once the RC
is voted to be the release.
    3. What I am proposing to make RC docs available under a path such as https://apex.apache.org/docs/apex/3.5.0-RC1
while the RC is in review so that folks can review the docs as well and make it available
under https://apex.apache.org/docs/apex when the release is ready.

If your project is set up for it, you can reply to this email and have your
reply appear on GitHub as well. If your project does not have this feature
enabled and wishes so, or if the feature is enabled but not working, please
contact infrastructure at infrastructure@apache.org or file a JIRA ticket
