Our release documentation doesn't really fit the RCn type of
semi-releases.  AFAIR, in the entire history of Emacs since the 1990s,
only one release ever had an RC, all the rest went straight from a
pretest to an official release.  That is why make-tarball.txt says
what it says: it doesn't assume that a non-release tarball can become
a release by just renaming the tarball file without any changes in the
contents and in the repository.
