Okay, so just to make sure we're all clear, the process we seem
to be converging on goes like this:

   1.  branch X.Y.Z/ from trunk/
   2.  with N starting at 1, tag the X.Y.Z/ branch X.Y.X-rc-N/ and
       create the corresponding tarball, stdcxx-X.Y.Z-rc-N.tar.gz;
       vote on tarball
   3.1 if the vote passes, rename tarball to stdcxx-X.Y.Z.tar.gz
       and proceed to publish it
   3.2 otherwise, fix problems on the X.Y.Z branch, increment N by
       1 and go to 2
