So that would then also be the final release name name (e.g. trafficsever-3.3.0-rc1-dev)?
I find that somewhat confusing, release candidates are typically associated with pre stable
releases (which is what we use the dev releases for). Renaming an artifact after the vote
completes  is a bit of PITA, unless we only rename the tarball and not the source tree it

If we are concerned about the reuse of the minor number during dev release recycles, I'd suggest
we do what Nick proposed, and simply skip version numbers. This has another problem though,
which is that all Jira tickets have to be renumbered on a respin (at least I would insist
that they should). But this would be my preference to address this concern. I'm +0 on this,
I just don't find it to be a significant problem myself. :)
