How we do releases including the numbering system is documented in the 

Version 5.2.0 is currently in the bacula.org git branch named 
"Branch-5.1", this means
that it has not yet been released.  Thus HEAD is the current 5.2.0 
pending release.  Note
until it is officially released, we may push a few more patches, 
especially if the testing
shows up any problems we can correct.

Once it is released, we will rename Branch-5.1 to be Branch-5.2 and we will
add a Release-5.2.0 tag to the HEAD at release.   Subsequent production 
and new "patch" releases will be in that branch.  Each release will all 
have a tag.

We will also start a new branch that will be called Branch-5.3, which 
will contain
"unstable" development code for the next release.

I don't see any need to change our current numbering system, it has 
worked very well for
quite a long time.

Best regards,
