I didn't want to derail that thread, but this does not line up with what
I've seen in Accumulo. (Though I agree that it is a common numbering

The Accumulo release guide[2] doesn't specify how "minor" and "major" turn
into positions in the version number. However, the git workflow guide[3]
does, and basically says that Accumulo uses


y = major
z = minor

This also lines up with my understanding of previous Accumulo releases and
cross-compatibility amongst them.
