The versions are for reporting issues against, so bugs reported from end 
users will usually be against officially released versions such as AOO340.

With only one issue reported against AOO340-dev and that one bug still 
being a problem in AOO340 just renaming the old version AOO340-dev to 
AOO340 should fine. I took the liberty to do just that.

Having bugs filed against official releases makes reproducing a problem 
easier because the binaries are easily available and widely used.

I suggest that versions such as AOO350-dev should only be used to report 
problems that don't happen on released versions, e.g. if it is a 
regression or if it involves a new feature. This also means that we 
shouldn't add versions such as AOO341-dev to bugzilla as micro releases 
are only to fix problems in the released product and they are by 
definition reproducible in the released version.

I sincerely hope that we can update to bugzilla >=4.2 soon which has the 
major new feature that obsolete versions can be marked as such.

I like Regina's suggestions.
