That's not what I was trying to drive at. Changing versions is fine
as long as there's a clear messaging around it to downstream.

For example, making sure that HIVE-2631 is scheduled for
inclusion into an upcoming Hive 0.8.0 release would greatly
those types of concerns for Hive.

Also having a clear message on a website/etc would help.

On the other hand -- NOT changing versions for quite
a bit of time (to let downstream catch up) is also an
option. That's what experience with Linux versioning
has taught me.
