Re: [wtp-dev] Next version after 3.0

I'm probably in the minority, but I think every year should be a full increment. Why? Why not? To me, these numbers are nearly meaningless so why not assign the meaning "the yearly release".
This leaves room for the possibility that one of the sub-projects, or WTP as a whole, might someday want to have a December release some years, so these sub-yearly releases would be the point-x releases. To me, this makes more sense than trying to say it's related to the functional content, which is pretty subjective. Also, since we haven't yet planned the next yearly release, I suspect it's hard to say if it would "deserve" a big increment or small one based on content.  

And remember, this number has nothing to do with plugin versions, and little to do with feature versions. (Some of our sub-projects do not have a "3.0" feature this year, for example).

But, most important for now ... I put the bugzilla entry in there ... while making other updates ... just thinking we'd need it eventually. With no particular plan in mind.
Does anyone need a "next release" target in bugzilla for triaging?
If so, and if any one projects wants a 3.1, just ask ... well, actually, I suspect any project lead could add it themselves via the committers tools page.

Subject: [wtp-dev] Next version after 3.0

I notice that there is already a 4.0 target in bugzilla. I realize that we’ve created a pattern for ourselves that’s very hard to break out of, but I think we are sending the wrong message to the community by being so aggressive in incrementing the version. Should the next year’s release be 3.1 instead?
