  I guess all parties agree with the first two points (and actually I would
prefer not to assume anything about tag names and consider v3.4-rc1 as good
as v3.4). Regarding the strategy what to select when there are several
remaining tags after first two steps I would prefer to output all such
tags. As people have mentioned in this thread it varies a lot between
projects what people want to see (and in some cases I can imagine people
really *want* to see all the tags). So printing all such tags would let
them select the desired tag with grep or some more elaborate scripting...
Just a thought.
