Forum OpenACS Development: Re: Version numbering to avoid clash between HEAD and branches

For xowiki/xotcl-core, we use on the release branch an additional level of version numbers. For example, the version of xowiki in the stable branch is currently 0.60.6, and is a derivative of 0.60 of the development path. Since the versions 0.60.1 ... 0.60.6 are fixes (that are supposed to show up on download from repository), the "b" or "d" suffixes don't look right in this case.
