[Mesa-dev] Proposal of date-based Mesa versioning for 2017

I propose that we use versioning in the form of "year.quarter".

2017 would start with 17.0, then 17.1, 17.2, 17.3 for following
quarters of the year, respectively.
2018 would start with 18.0, then 18.1, 18.2, 18.3.

The motivation is that you can easily tell when a specific Mesa
version was released with an accuracy of 3 months.

That's the only scheme that seems practical to me. Everything else
seems arbitrary or random.
