We agreed on a version scheme where RCi are full releases (from release
process point of view) while not including everything planned on JIRA
for the corresponding version: hence, our 1.0.0-RC1-incubating doesn't
have all fixes planned for 1.0.0-incubating.

In other words, RC1 is referring to the completeness of the code against
the issues, not to the completeness of the release against the release
requirements.

At least, this is how we defined Syncope release numbering scheme;
moreover, it seems to me that every project is defining its own
versioning ([1] [2] [3] for example), and I personally think it's correct.

Release numbers are just labels, after all, isn't it?

Anyway, is there also other IPMC available to check the release to bind
his vote? Thanks!

Regards.
