1. I am confused? Should Django use revision numbers or version numbers? Your title says ‘version numbers’ which django does. The 0.96-dev is exactly that and has not changed in months. Your comments make is sound like revision numbers should be used instead.

    the question I have is ‘where’ are you getting confused over ‘what’. Only when the real problem is described, can a workable solution can be found.


  2. Django has changed a lot since I first started using it. But to the uninitiated, there is very little difference between 0.95 and 0.96. So maybe my title should have been “Django should be more liberal with version numbers”.

    I’m ok with the scheme as a user, but often I run into outsiders who are under the impression that the project is stagnant because of the apparent lack of change in version numbers.
