Right, this is exactly what I'm asking for (or alterntively -rc* tags).

Ok, guess I'm talking about "tagged" not "released". I'm not
familiar with the apache release process. As I see it 3.1.4 was tagged
5 times as release candidates, and the final one was released. In
other projects I think we'd see 3.1.4-rc1, rc2, rc3, rc4 and rc5 which
eventually would be renamed to non-rc when it was officially released.

Sounds good.
