To me, codenames are confusing . I'd rather see a clear message like "we

Sebastien, It would seem to me that '4.2 pre-rc dev release that may later
become 5.0 but we are not sure.' is at the least not less confusing. A 4.2
rc implies that the fact that there will be a 4.2 is set, which is not true
if the number is bumped.
Right, but we should know before cutting a "4.2" branch if it's really
going to be 4.2 or not, from looking at JIRA and proposed features
Other then that I agree that the fun of having a gammaray release is rather
thin as justification.
