Sounds reasonable. Which makes me wonder if we shouldn't change the
naming of branches a bit:

We should have a branch for the development of new versions (1.30.x),
let's call it DEVELOP_1_30_x. On this branch, we can now add several
tags: Version_1_30_0_RC_1, Version_1_30_0_RC_2, Version_1_30_0,
Version_1_30_1_RC_1, Version_1_30_1_RC_2, Version_1_30_1_RC_3,
Version_1_30_1, etc.

This would IMHO be an easy, straight-forward system which allows us to
tag/create "real" release-candidates (like Beman already did for the
current release but manually IIRC) and both the .0 version and
bug-fix-versions - all in one "correctly"-named branch. Comments?
