Thank you.

Maybe label the next version as "9.0.1", skipping "9.0.0"?

With so many milestone releases when someone mentions "9.0.0" in some
e-mail it will be confusing whether that is the real "9.0.0" release
or one of those milestones. Some other projects have an explicit
"RELEASE" or "GA" suffix, but we do not have one.

With Tomcat 8.0 we skipped 8.0.0 as it did not pass the vote.
