Shouldn\t the message go to zsh-users instead of zsh-workers? I've
forwarded it, it's below:

I've tagged 5.6.2-test-3 and uploaded the artefacts to:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/zsh/files/zsh-test/5.6.2-test-3

Hope i did this right. If someone could please glance at it to make sure that
would be nice. Thanks Daniel and Peter for helping me.

PS: Building the docs on macOS is an insane ordeal. After messing with it for
almost an hour i finally got to the point where i had to install X11 to
generate the PDF and decided it just wasn't worth it. I ended up building on
an old Linux lap-top. If anyone's done this on macOS before and knows a trick
to it that doesn't require a million weird dependencies, please let me know

PPS: Notes/docs on zsh.org were never updated for 5.6.x. I haven't done that
now, but i'll look into it later

Thanks, and yes, I think the wider audience would be helpful, but at the
same time, we should clarify what guarantees test releases (don't) have.
At Subversion, our release candidate (RC) announcements explicitly (and
somewhat verbosely) say that RC's may have serious bugs and that no
upgrade path is promised:

http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/subversion/trunk/tools/dist/templates/rc-release-ann.ezt

I would assume zsh pre-releases will have similar (non)-promises.  For
example, don't promise that 5.7 will be backwards compatible with 5.6.2-test-
3; only that it'll be compatible with 5.6.2.

Cheers,

Daniel
