Good, discussion!

Here is the problem, if the build is not deemed "good" by rel-eng to be
in the release after the release candidate where does it go?  Basically
the idea is that once the RC hits, "development" of the release is
done, but we want to enable developers to prepare updates to the
pending release to be able to release them out to updates-testing
shortly after the release.  Having the builds from the branch be tagged
as if the release were already out helps in this regard, as they're
already in the right place to be prepared as an update within Bodhi,
and if a rel-eng request is made to bring it into the release if
rel-eng agrees it's a simple tag action to "move it", and if we say no,
no tagging action is necessary it's all set up to be prepared as an

Does that clarify why we're tagging them as potential updates at this
