Hello, How we do releases including the numbering system is documented in the manual.
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 patches 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.
