I think we should only use 1 kind of separator, everything else produces
impredictable sort order results in different contexts.
Unfortunately replacing th underscore by a dot does not heal Bugzilla
sort order problems, here an example I see in Bugzilla:
Condensing this my suggestion for releases is some structure like
126.96.36.199 (rc info not in Help about)
188.8.131.52 (rc info not in Help about)
184.108.40.206 (release info not in Help about)
I doubt that any approach not containing the leading number structure
will cause sort order problems. So I think all further suggestions
should be based on such a leading numbers block.
Any Idea how we can integrate the Branch and Master Versions? Please
keep in Mind that I do not want to have them all in the Version picker,
that would produce an endless slider for Versions with 1 reported Bug or so.
BTW I am not happy with the current
"libreoffice-220.127.116.11 tag created (3.6.0-beta1)"
Although this approach has the charm of "mathematical correctness", we
can't do that without a volunteer answering all questions like "I have a
3.6.0 with a 3.5 Tag number, is that a bug?" ;-)
I believe that's too worrying for users (although it seems to work for
Mozilla, but do we have info how happy they are with that?). But of
course, that's only my private feeling.
