Announcing the third release candidate for Pacemaker 1.1.10

This RC is a result of work in several problem areas reported by users, some of which date back to 1.1.8: 

* manual fencing confirmations
* potential problems reported by Coverity
* the way anonymous clones are displayed
* handling of resource output that includes non-printing characters
* handling of `on-fail=block`

Please keep the bug reports coming in.  There is a good chances that
this will be the final release candidate and 1.1.10 will be tagged on
May 30th.

Help is specifically requested for testing plugin-based clusters, ACLs
and admin actions (such as moving and stopping resources, calls to
stonith_admin) which are hard to test in an automated manner.

To build `rpm` packages for testing:

1. Clone the current sources:

       # git clone --depth 0 git://github.com/ClusterLabs/pacemaker.git
       # cd pacemaker

1. Install dependancies

       [Fedora] # sudo yum install -y yum-utils
       [ALL]	# make rpm-dep

1. Build Pacemaker

       # make rc

1. Copy and deploy as needed
