For a while, I saw some early Maven adopters using "SNAPSHOT", as in 
"struts-1.2.1-SNAPSHOT".  SNAPSHOT has special meaning to Maven, and 
I haven't ever gotten quite clear on whether that's when the exact 
version is "SNAPSHOT" or whenever a version contains "SNAPSHOT".

I would probably use 'dev' myself, though, unless there's some other 
consensus I haven't caught on to.
