what about following GDAL "approach"? Release manager usually writes
to ML "do you agree that upcoming RCX will be released as final?". If
no objection appears within few days, than the new version is
released. In RFC4 we should require RC1 at least. So first candidate
for final release would be upcoming RC2.
