Given your versioning scheme:
version number consist of major.minor.patchlevel
Increasing a minor version would mean 4 -> 5. What you increment in the
example seems to be the patchlevel.
Or have I misunderstood?

- no stable branches are created ("major version branch" is also) since
our development on the trunk is contiguous and linear. such branching
makes no sense
This means that the major of uim will never get moved up to another digit?
Anyway, find attached an updated DocBook/XML file that lays out this scheme.
Some things need to be filled in.

When you are right, you cannot be too radical; When you are wrong, you
cannot be too conservative.
