thank you for your detailled comment. I will have to check all details
later, here some first thoughts:
"rc" should not appear in Help/About", that's an additional info added
to Bugzilla Version like "Master".

Yes, a big advantage would be if we coud rework the scheme a little so
that the version number is more or less in accordance with the timeline.
Currently I do not understand "18.104.22.168 (3.6.0beta1)". If that is
Mozilla intention I would prefer something like
3.6.0.00x for alphas
22.214.171.124x0 for betas
126.96.36.199 for RC (example) and/or release
188.8.131.52 for RC (example) and/or release
184.108.40.206 for release(example)
Only a first thought
But generally we can think about making that "alpha" and "beta" also an
"additional information" (No problem if it additinally is in Help/About)
and make a "w.x.yy.zz" Numbering scheme the main information (also
readable for Bug Submission Assistant)
A Very bad thing is that we can not search the Bugzilla Bug picker for a
Version copied from Help about, and so currently something like
"220.127.116.11" might be more fault-prone than a "3.6.0beta1" for transfer /
selection by human beings. But I believe that is a base for further
thougts, and the priority should be a logic Version sheme in "Help
About", Bugzilla pickers will have to follow (somehow).

I would like to have 3.5 and 3.6 in the correct scheme, for 3.3 and 3.4
I currently want to leave the Bugzilla versions more or less as they
are, only stripping the leading "LibO "
