Having a bit of trouble parsing this; didn't get Josh's note for some reason.
Are you wanting RC4 called 1.2, or are you wanting the eventual release called
1.2? I pulled the 1.1 file from the web site yesterday because Ken told me
that it had problems and that the only reason that it was up there was because
it was too much trouble to take it down.
RC4 is supposed to lead up to version 1.1. Since there is already a
tarball called 1.1 floating around, I think you should turn 1.1-RC4 into
1.2-RC4, then call the formal release 1.2. You can see the confusion this
has already created and there isn't even a release yet.
A general comment here... it's really hard to make some types of changes on
savannah. For example, they have to take files down; maintainers can't do it
themselves. So if there are any issues with naming or content let's get them
hashed out in advance. I've heard from very few folks since heading down this
path and will be less sympathetic to complaints that come in after the fact.
Then don't make such changes. Start your tenure out with a release called
1.2. That puts all previous versions in the past, with no potential for
confusion. Heck, you could get all modern and call it nmh2005 ;)
