Why could it cause bad image? IMHO, it was bug on the Secunia side and
it is fixed now. We used this version scheme also for LO-3.4 and nobody

It looks trivial but it is not. We would need to do clean build for all
systems, upload them to mirrors, restart smoketests, ... So, this change
would delay the release by many days.

Also, it is potentially dangerous. The version is defined and used on
many locations. Any change could cause strange side effects. Also there
are many scripts around that depends on a certain version scheme. So, we
should not change this between rc2 and rc3 if there is not a big reason.

Well, I agree that is ugly. We are discussion to use the more
reasonable version scheme now, see
If it goes well, we might try it for 3.5.3 release.
