Add note about release candidate

parent f6817529
......@@ -50,6 +50,14 @@ General steps (for each step, check for possible errors):
For a pretest, start at version .90. After .99, use .990 (so that
it sorts).
The final pretest should be a release candidate. Set the version
number to that of the actual release. Pick a date about a week
from now when you intend to make the release. Use M-x add-release-logs
to add the ChangeLog entries for that date to the tar file (but
not yet to the repository). Name the tar file as
emacs-XX-Y-rc1.tar. If all goes well in the following week, you
can simply rename the file and use it for the actual release.
