    -## Versioning Strategies
    - 1. `SemVer` ([Semantic Version](
    -   * Used by platforms, plugman, CLI, core plugins
    -   * Is important when describing dependencies in a sane way (e.g. within plugin.xml
    +## Version Format
    -CLI exists in both lists because its version has the format: `CadVer-SemVer`
    - * E.g.: `3.0.0-0.5.1`
    +`SemVer` ([Semantic Version]( will be used as the
    +version format for all components, including platforms, plugman, CLI, core
    +plugins. Doing so is important when describing dependencies in a sane way
    +(e.g. within plugin.xml files). Although the CLI previously used a 
    +`CadVer-SemVer` format, it now uses a simple SemVer format. The `CadVer` format
    +is no longer used in any Cordova components. The plugins no longer have an `r`
    -## Release Strategies
    +The semantics of `SemVer` should be followed, bumping the appropriate digit
    +based on the impact of the new content.
    +## Branching and Tagging
    +All components also follow the same branching and tagging strategy, including
    +plugins and tools. A `major.minor.X` release branch (i.e., "3.7.x") should be
    +created, and any fixes should be appended to that release branch. New content
    +should be on the master branch, and a new release branch created at release
    +time. When a release is performed, a release tag is added to the appropriate
    +branch (i.e., "3.8.0" tag is put on the "3.8.x" branch).
    +## Version Behavior
    +Plugin versions will all be separate and independent. So there may be a "1.2.0"
    +of the Device plugin, and a "3.4.5" of the Camera plugin at the same time.
    +The bumping of the version numbers of each plugin should be appropriate to the
    +new content added to that plugin. The `cordova plugin add` command will add
    +the most recent version of that plugin by default, though alternately the user
