This means that for the reported period of time, the directory authority
gabelmoo, which I maintain, recommended more versions for use than the
other versioning directory authorities. This happened because the
decision to change the recommended versions was made while I was asleep,
and I've only fixed it for the upcoming consensus in a few minutes.
So the message is harmless.

The idea is to recommend all versions which aren't known to be bad, so
that an operator who reads their Tor logs will realize their Tor really
needs to be upgraded in order to remain secure/operational when theysee
it. So, if an -rc version is fine to use, we can keep recommending it.
Thanks for keeping an eye on our infrastructure!
