Anything related to the next release should have the release number of
the next release in it's name, not the current release. The 10.91 stuff
of the past was a pain, because you couldn't use that name to find the
corresponding parts of mirrors and the number changed for no good reason
along the way. Just calling it 13 and using the prerelease naming convention
for the rpm release info works much nicer.
