I keep my fingers crossed. It was originally your proposal, see
So the hope is alive :-)

I would prefer to keep the dot there. Bjorn mentioned in one mail that
any kind of delimiter helps to parse this using sed/grep/awk.

Also I think that it is visually better than without the dot. Well, this
might be personal opinion.

Sounds reasonable.

Well, IMHO, we could avoid the daily build versions in bugzilla at all.
Reporters need to paste the build date or the build id anyway. In
addition, the daily builds are used by slightly more experienced people,
so we could expect more reasonable commit messages here.

We have it under our control, so it should not be an issue. I guess that
there is a basic alphabetical sorting.

Hmm, there will be after we create the tag for alpha1.
It is currently planed one week before branching. Well, in general, we
might provide more alpha releases from master before branching.

Note that branching means that we split 3.7 development from master.
When it happens, master will be heading to the 3.8 release.
