AFAICT there's some discussion about some stuff and some discussion
that's pretty much what I said in the very first email except
s/rel/release/ s/rc/vote/ which is fine. Using vote is better than rc
because its more obvious what's meant.

For the contents of the tag message itself, I couldn't care less
really. Anything we add is going to be more helpful than the SVN
version. Though honestly, when's the last time anyone actually
*looked* at a tag commit message for useful information. I can tell
you exactly how many times I have. Zero. If I want to know the change
log I check it out and and read the file appropriately named CHANGES.

As to massively restructuring our development and maintenance
patterns, I pretty much just ignored all of that. I mean, if we want
to change that, then sure, we can discuss that sort of thing in a
thread that's not about what to name release branches and tags.

So yep.
