I have a question. Why are you tagging a release and do testing? Most of
the time a problem is found and a new release is tagged and it starts
over (I think the max was a 3 or 4 patch level jump).

Why not tagging an RC? People test the RC. When all is ok, the RC is
released. If not a new RC is tagged.
