There's a bit of a description on the ReleasePlan page regarding our
versioning scheme, however it does not include this particular piece
of information:

As versions are pretty intertwined with the Release process, I guess
I'd just expand the Version scheme section on that page, at least
until it gets a bit big for the page, then factor it out :-)

Regarding version #'s, some useful pieces of information might include:
- What builds have a plus sign ("+") in them?
- How do we name builds from the master branch?
- What is the difference between a minor version release and a Major
version release? (e.g. do we allow more API changes/more breakage in
the latter?)
- A link to the Bug Report page regarding how to choose Version Number
for a bug report (just in case a user searches the wiki for
version-number information and ends up here)
- Any other version-related guidelines/nuances
