Subject Re: Qpid C++ and Python 15.02 - Alpha approaches
Date Mon, 19 Jan 2015 19:30:50 GMT
We can still change it.  I know Robbie isn't sold either, and I'm open to
the alternative we discussed: 3.1, 3.2, 3.3, etc.

I should note that while I think the date-based approach is reasonable,
it's not a good fit for a pure-API module such as qpid-proton or qpid-jms.
There I think you want the major number to signal the presence or absence
of big API changes.

Since it wasn't mentioned before: I also like 31, 32, 33 for Qpid C++ and
similar.  It's the style that Firefox uses, and I think it does a slightly
better job of representing the pace and lifecycle of some of our
components.  Stated negatively, it avoids the major number becoming
arbitrary--more marketing than substance.

In summary, my preference:

  Pure API modules such as qpid-jms, -proton: 0.1, 0.2, 1.0, 1.1, 2.0, 2.1,
  Servers, tools, test suites: 31, 32, 33, 33.1, etc.
