May I assume that the RC versioning scheme is going to continue the
way it is right now?

Yes, because we primarily use rubygems for distributing releases. The
prerelease functionality [1] isn’t well documented, but requires that
you put letters in the version for it to be a pre-release, thus
allowing it to be installed with ‘gem install --pre’ but not be
installed by ‘gem install.’

I’ve written up a rough draft of some of these details:

Any comments or additional questions that I could answer and document
are appreciated.
