The standard procedure is that we create a new tarball right before the
final .0 release, at the end of the grace period. (see HACKING)

The code might be identical, but at least the svn_version.h, localization
and documentation won't be. Looking back at 1.5, 1.6 and 1.7 there might be
a few more release candidates based on initial real-world testing...

But I'm quite positive that we won't need as many candidates as the last few
times. But let's discuss that after the final release.

But in the past we did our usual testing and signing rounds for release
candidates too... I don't see that activity now?
