Indeed, the obvious - the immediately following commits in all three
trees are the XSA-100 fixes (and had been at the time of tagging).
The (obvious I would say) reason was that with the huge delay we
already are facing with these releases, I didn't want to wait for
another round of pushes on all three trees before doing the RC1s
(taking into consideration that XSA-100 isn't one of the most
pressing issues that would absolutely have to have been fixed in
a particular RC; that would likely have been different for a release).
