Doh, this is a problem, in our case 1.9.0 should be greater than
1.9.0dev1. Hmm, maybe we should reconsider the even/odd scheme. How about:
- vx.y.z, where y is an even number
- 1.10.0, 1.10.1, 2.0.0, 2.2.0, etc
- vx.ydevz, where y is an odd number
- 1.9dev1, 1.9dev2, 2.1dev2
This seems good to me. The one-branch problem still exists (ie. most
stable branches will only have .0 and maybe .1), but what the heck, it's
not like we are going to run out of version numbers. :)
