I say don't bump until the vote passes or fails. If it passes, either
drop the branch, or if there are commits since the RC was made, no-op
merge in the tag, bump the version, and rename the branch. The version
doesn't matter until later.

I believe the release plugin has a goal to bump versions only, so that
part is pretty easy.
