I know this has been committed already, but the ramifications of this are
that people using inbetween versions of stuff will report -rc1 instead of
-dev.  for example, if redhat releases the next mod_perl using a development
version it will come back as -rc1 and not -dev.  personally, I find this
quite misleading, since it will clearly _not_ be the rc1 that ends up
floating around before we make the next release, so now we need to ask "hmm,
was that _the_ rc1 or something from 5 months before rc1?"

does it matter, maybe or maybe not.  but it's something to consider.

oh, and is for perl-framework and flood things -
A-T-only discussions should probably be limited to
to limit overload on people completely uninterested in things perl :)
