To be perfectly honest, I don't think I can think of any (apart from the
kernel and wine) that have a stable branch(es) and use rc. Can you
kindly point me to some or if you have some ideas of a search phrase
that would be appreciated.

I have the feeling that X related projects tend to exclusively use
proposed format, so I'm trying to keep mesa close/related to X,
non-alien and consistent.

Is that so much to ask for ?
