+1 - I also think that any committer should feel free to bump the
fourth version whenever they feel like it.

On a side note, there's nothing to say you can't still build snapshots
if you want to share with the dev list what you built. You just
shouldn't publicize it elsewhere.

+1. I think the lack of a "next" JIRA ID for 10.3 and 10.4 is simply
oversight, I know I forgot to add after releasing
I've gone ahead and added them. I will update item 13 in the release
instructions to be clear that two new versions need to be added at the
end of the process.
