The poll on SurveyMonkey on how to version the openSUSE distribution release
is now closed, you can see the results here. The winner is the "old school"
(like currently but only counting the right number until 3), followed by
"Fedora style" (just integers) and "Ubuntu style" (2 digits year "." 2 digits
month).

The openSUSE members only poll is now live on connect until April 04, 2011.
Please select your favorite option

Andreas,

I was hoping the "old-school" vote last time would allow for a vote
this time of when to rollover:

a) 12.0, 12.1, 13.0, 13.1, etc.
b) 12.0, 12.1, 12.2, 13.0, 13.1, 13.2, 14.0 etc.
c) 12.0, 12.1, 12.2, 12.3, 13.0, 13.1, 13.2, 13.3, 14.0 etc.
c) 12.0, 12.1, 12.2, 12.3, 12.4, 13.0, 13.1, 13.2, 13.3, 13.4, 14.0 etc.

Ignoring Evergreen, my vote is a) because 12.0 would go out of support
shortly after 13.0 would come out. So for a server etc. it might make
sense to only use the .0 releases.

If Evergreen is "real" and takes support from 18 months to 36 months,
then I would like to reset after .3 for the same reason. ie. all .0
releases could be designated a Evergreen release and everyone would
know it.
