Matt,  including a notation in the filename seems like a good idea and could
help prevent confusion.  I've also seen projects use a date string instead
of a release candidate number for this purpose.  Using a date string is
helpful since it makes it obvious when the image was created plus avoids
publicizing how many unsuccessful attempts there have been (not saying that
would be an issue in this case :o)

Best wishes,
