Well, no, it's not in the dictionary. Perhaps too new a term? Not
commonly used in the general language?

But I mean, in terms of general principles, would you hyphenate it or
not? I'd thought perhaps so because of the double "re" at the
beginning of the word, but I see "rerelease" in AH. MW's not much
help, unless I'm missing something in my haste. A Google search
turns up the solid form in common use. But these are all manner of
blogs and casual discussions. I haven't had a chance to diligently
search published sources.
