yes M7/RC... for equinox,p2,JDT would be fine with me.
BTW we've used eclipse milestones for Tycho releases several times in the past already.
Just in case there is really a need for 0.23.1 after Mars final, we can do it using Mars final binaries.
It's a chicken-egg problem. If we wait for Mars final before doing a release, eclipse platform will have released with a SNAPSHOT version of Tycho i.e. build not reproducible (and this is esp. bad in the context of long term support). OTOH once M7 or whatever we used for 0.23.0 is gone, the Tycho release build itself is also no longer reproducible.
Having to choose between the two I find it easier to release Tycho earlier, given the size and complexity of the eclipse platform build compared to the Tycho build.
Of course ideally eclipse platform would not be using Tycho SNAPSHOTs in the first place so this problem wouldn't exist, but they had to go on SNAPSHOT for good reasons I assume.
