3. "Mandriva style": YYYY.counter (4 digit year, counter starts a

Next release is: 2011.1
Following releases: 2012.0, 2013.0, 2013.1, 2014.0, 2015.1

Anything else I should add to the list above?

"Mandriva style variation" or "deterministic old school":
YY.counter (2 digit year, counter starts at 0)

The next release could be either 11.5 to continue with current
counter or just like magazines do it and go for YY+1 (ie 12.0)
already near the end of the year.
Advantage: 1:1 compatible with current rpm macros

Please make one concrete proposal - or two - following my example
above.

Your list lacks the information how to map the "marketing version"
to %suse_version.

I see for all of them a trivial way to do it, the exception is the seasons
but even there we can say Spring = 1,etc and then have Spring 2011 =
201110.

Right now 11.4 has suseversion 1140, for the Mandriva style, a 2011.1
release could be 201110, for the octal one, 012 would be 1200.
