Summary0006120: Ability to ./unrealircd upgrade to release candidate
DescriptionObviously don't upgrade to an RC if a user just types "./unrealircd upgrade"
But when the user explicitly requests it, eg via "./unrealircd upgrade --rc" or something like that. May also help with more testing of RC's.

TagsNo tags attached.

Yeah, great idea! Implemented now.

"./unrealircd upgrade" will now detect if you are using an RC, and if so it would upgrade you the very latest version.. whether it is a stable or an RC version.
This means 6.0.4-rc1 upgrades to 6.0.4-rc2, and when stable is out it will upgrade to 6.0.4.

"./unrealircd upgrade --rc" can be used to go from a stable to a RC. Such as 6.0.3 to 6.0.4-rc2.

Caveats (things that happen but that I don't care about at all at the moment because it is no issue)
* if you eg end up from 6.0.4-rc1 to 6.0.4-rc2 and then to stable 6.0.4, you are then considered on 'stable', so a next "./unrealircd upgrade" without --rc would not upgrade you to a 6.0.5-rc1, you need to use explicit pass --rc then to go from a stable to rc. In other words: we don't have a concept of a "release" channel and a "beta" channel as some other projects have.
* I did not bother for the case when there would be RC's on both branches, it assumes RC's only exist in 6.x at the moment.

This change is in the stage2 upgrade script which is fetched online (along with its GPG signature) so there is no commit for it in the unrealircd repo. It should work for 5.0.9+ or 5.2.0+ at least.
