I can appreciate that view.  I hadn't noticed the use of the term official
until someone else pointed it out.  Apparently, neither had anyone else.

You did do, so what is
the "this release" to which you refer?

FWIW, versioning schemes such as:


where M == major, m == minor, Q in [D:Development, A:Alpha, B:Beta,
R:Release], and B == Build# encode the release type.  I supposed that 1.0m1
represents a milestone.

In any event, I'm sure that people can come up with some perfectly sane
scheme to label.  The only thing is that we don't want it to smell like
official ASF code until after the project graduates the Incubator.
