Oh. I had just copied what we did for 5.7:


If that's undesirable, i'll add it to the release instructions later.

On a related note, i also wasn't clear on how the -dev- and -test- numbering
are meant to work. Previous first -test- releases have either reset the number
to 1 or incremented the last -dev- number (e.g., -dev-1 to -test-2). The
release instructions say -dev-$((i++)) and -test-$((++j)), which i guess means
start from -dev-0 and -test-1, but it's not quite explicit. Is that correct?
(If they do have different 'base indexes', why?)

Lastly, should the 'latest version' on Sourceforge be updated to point to test
releases, or only stable ones? The instructions didn't make a distinction, so
i updated it, but that's another thing that might be made more explicit.

PS: You might've noticed that i also forgot to update the change log before
tagging; i can't blame that on confusion, i just messed up :(
