Outlining as version release numbers

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on June 14, 2005 02:44 AM
Just for fun - here is an idea:

Use basic outline numbering to denote where in the "tree" your releases are. For example:

1. First release

  1.A First branch of 1

    1.A.1 First branch of 1.A

    1.A.2 Second branch of 1.A

      1.A.2.A First branch of 1.A.2

      1.A.2.B Second branch of 1.A.2

    1.A.3 Third branch of 1.A

  1.B Second branch of 1

    1.B.1 First branch of 1.B

  1.C Third branch of 1
2. A complete rewrite

  2.A First branch of 2
