One of my issues with major/minor is that we then have the pressure to
conform to Major/Minor. The progression must be followed, but what if
upstream have no major changes and nothing much is happening with the

What constitutes 'major'? Is it seen as partisan to mark a
significant development in one desktop or another? Can one major
follow another immediately if some major development occurs?

I don't think so, we're discussing each and every time when to go to 12.0
and find no solution for it. Instead we make our distribution worth since
we don't feel it's good enough to be a new major release.

But we do not have a major release like that anymore, all releases are
equally major - or equally minor ;) - and therefore let's find an
algorithmic way to define this. If you have another easy algorithm, I'd
like to hear it even if voting has already started...

Major/Minor/Release ##.0 is not a player, does not exist! There is no
reason to discuss major/minor, only the issue numbering schema and
dispelling the mith, major/minor.
