Subject Re: 1.1 Candidate releases available
Date Wed, 07 Jun 2006 17:35:15 GMT
Aaron,

Joe put out a thread about the interpretation of versions which I think is exactly this problem.
 If 
we have a well understood algorithm for Versions that includes several aspects of the final
qualifer 
(if present) this would solve the issue.  So releases is just one of many possible uses. 
 Others 
include patched versions, SNAPSHOTS, etc.

Does this sound right to you?
