I don't think we ever decrease the version.  In Dan's example "
bumped after rc2"   means that  the version on the branch was bumped
after  rc2 was made and  is done in preparation for the next release.
rc2 was version and would be released as is if accepted  as the
official release.

In general we bump the version when the work begins, so for example we
bumped the trunk to 10.2 right after 10.1 branched to mark that the
version as shown by sysinfo is 10.2 work under progress. 

If the last digit indicates an  external release of jars (snapshot,
release candidate, or release), then we bump it right after each post to
the website, to indicate we are working on the next external release.

Since our third digit represents only that this is a bug fix release and
more testing has been done, then it makes sense to me bump it just
before the release candidate is made to mark the beginning of testing.
