[Sugar-devel] Proposal of dotted activity version number

So the proposed 1.2.3-peru numbering scheme really is a 1.2.3 scheme
with an optional trailing taint hint?
It probably makes better sense to clearly distinguish those two
essentially separate issues:
* mainline numbering
+ triple integers
+ Debian-style triple string scheme
* how to officially handle "slight forks"
+ extending triple integers with fourth integer/string
+ non-version suffix to version
+ separate field
+ no official support
The easiest for Debian would be if you version your code using triple
integers, as that properly supports multiple branches (which you _are_
doing, whether you admit it or not!).
debian care not about deployment forks, but I sure recommend that you do
support it properly - which means make room for it in the versioning
string and admit that forks are versioned too - not only a non-versioned
