Thanks for that! If I'm reading all of that correctly, "M-builds"
(milestones) are actually pre-alpha, right? Which means, there will be
a 9.0.0-alpha at some point. Also, I assume there might be more than
one alpha or beta release. So we can again expect something like:
9.0.0-alpha1, 9.0.0-alpha2, etc. If so, will the first alpha contain
numerical suffix. Or first one will be just 9.0.0-alpha, and prefixes
added only if it turns out there are more than one "alpha" stage

Additional note, on Milestone builds are at
the moment referenced as "alpha", which IMVHO is confusing. For

"The Apache Tomcat Project is proud to announce the release of version
9.0.0.M10 (alpha) of Apache Tomcat.(...)"

Thank you!
