Release Candidate of oVirt 4.0.4 for testing, as of August 31st, 2016.

Hi Sandro,
does this mean that 4.0.3 was final, 2 days ago?
I indeed noticed a strange subject in that e-mail

[ANN] oVirt 4.0.3 Final Release Candidate is now available

There were both "Final" and "Candidate" words ... and I was a bit confused...

Sorry, my copy / paste bad habit for announce emails...
Yes, it was final.

Also if this is true, any particular reason to have a new release candidate right 2 days after the previous final?
Is it not too fast for users to stay ahead? Or do we need to consider "Release Candidate" phrase in a different way than usual?
Only my opinion...

4.0.3 has been a short cycle release to fix some urgent bugs / regression on top of 4.0.2.

4.0.4 will have probably a longer cycle and even if we just released 4.0.3 GA, having fixed more than 100 bugs comparing to 4.0.3 seemed a good idea to issue a RC allowing people afflicted by those bugs to have a fix to test as soon as possible.
