We'll keep the idea of version number, cf JF could you add it in version.h.
+/- how Apache http team use....


/* Numeric release version identifier: MMNNFFRBB: major minor fix final beta
 * Always increases along the same track as the source branch.
 * For example, Apache 1.4.2 would be '10402100', 2.5b7 would be '20500007'.
#define APACHE_RELEASE 10320100


#define JK_MODULE_RELEASE 10200001	(1.2.0-b1 )

Could you develop ?
