1. Rainer states a valid point that if those files are named "6.0.22"
someone can download them from and claim later that
it is ours.

If those are named differently, will PGP signatures still apply?

Though it would be good to do some testing with a 6.0.0-dev build as a
RC after several months of active development, or after reconfiguring
the build environment.

2. Do we change 6.0.0-dev -> 6.0.22 in the properties file in SVN
before that revision, or in the tag only, or change it only locally?
I would prefer it to be changed in the tag.

3. While RC voting goes, should we make "6.0.(n+1)" section
in changelog.xml and add new items there, optionally moving them
into "6.0.n" section if voting fails?

I think it is OK to trash one or more version numbers. It preserves consistency.
And will we ever beat HTTPD with their *.*.63 for 2.0.x?
