Still there are no guarantees that technical changes cannot happen even
after this point (due to appeals, major flaws discovered during AUTH48,
or something else), so a conservative vendor may be better off waiting
until the RFC has been published.

For GnuTLS, I will start the process to prepare a release candidate at
this point, but wait until the RFC has been published to do the actual
release.
