Re: [VOTE] Release 1.6.0, release candidate #2

I'm not strictly sure whether there must not be any issues with a
fixVersion of the current RC. At least in the past, we did not do it like
this. Moreover, if a RC is canceled some of these issues might still go in
the actual release.

However, I also see the point that the release notes are confusing as long
as the RC is not released. Once we release, JIRA will bump all unresolved
issues with a fixVersion of the release version to the next minor release
version. Then the release notes should reflect the truth.

I think this we should clearly define how the community wants to handle
this situation and adhere to it with the next release.
