Subject Tomcat Version Numbers

All,

I have a question about Tomcat versions numbers, prompted by the recent
announcement of TC 7.0.2 beta.

Will the TC 7.x versions numbers increase like 7.0.3, 7.0.4, and then at
some point it will be considered "stable"? That sounds like Tomcat 7.0.0
is not actually a release version, right? Given that, there's no telling
which 7.0 version will be the first stable one, right?

Is the same true for TC 6.0? I'm guessing yes. What was the first
version of TC 6.0 that was considered stable?

Browsing to http://archive.apache.org/dist/tomcat/tomcat-6/ seems to
indicate that 6.0.10 was the first version not marked as "alpha" or "beta".

I'm not entirely sure why, but I find this confusing. :( It's not that I
don't get it... it's that I have a deep-seated need for the release
version to be called 7.0.0 for some reason. Is there a reason that the
alphas and betas are not called something like 7.0.0-beta1 and
7.0.0-beta2, etc.?

Just curious.

Thanks,
- -chris
