Hi Petr, all,

I wonder if the "LibreOffice 3.5.0" plus tagname is a reasonable
compromise? I.e. for RC builds, drop the "LibreOffice 3.5.0 betaX"
product name postfix - since RCs behave like final in other ways,
and the tagname libreoffice- is descriptive enough?

I would personally *hate* any solution that needs re-doing *any*
work on build hosts & mirrors, just for getting one string fixed. ;)
