Well, unfortunately its not there in the makefile, so you can't tell
2.6.25 from 2.6.26-rc0...

Would 'rc0' make robots happy?

It'll probably make some of them work and break others. It's pretty hard-coded in most of them that the flow is from 2.6.25 -> 2.6.26-{pre,rc}*; whether or not they permit a zero probably depends on if they know what is available or not (ketchup wouldn't be able to, for example, but the incdiff robot *might* "just work".)
