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 calle d 1.2?
I believe he is indicating that because there is a tarball already in
circulation _ (even if it doesn't exist on savannah today) called
nmh-1.1.tar.gz, that releasing 1.1 would be confusing. See this
..  http://www.mhonarc.org/archive/html/nmh-workers/2004-11/msg00011.html
The FSF directory entry _ also indicates that nmh-1.1.tar.gz is
..  http://directory.fsf.org/email/clients/text/nmh.html.
It appears even the MH FAQ includes a reference _ to nmh-1.1.tar.gz.

1.1-RC3, for good or bad, is known as the "official" 1.1. Therefore,
the MINOR number of this new version should be bumped to 2 making
nmh-1.1-RC4 nmh-1.2-RC4. Even if it's an "artificial" version
increment, it'll make it clearer to grep for upgrades in light of the
1.1 "confusion". You could choose to make the version nmh-1.2-RC1 if
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.
Exactly, though it looks like you'll have to make that request. It
may actually make sense to find a copy of the nmh-1.1.tar.gz that
matches the post in _ and upload it for posterity.
