Just a thought: I and I'm sure many of the Evolution developers find themselves frequently switching between Subversion builds and official releases as part of our daily work routine, and sometimes I get confused about what I'm running, especially when bonobo-activatation-server is part of the equation.
I notice we've been doing pre-release version incrementing (bumping the version number just before a release) for at least as long as I've been involved with Evolution. I was wondering if the team would be open to switching to post-release version incrementing (bumping the version number just after a release). The GNOME Live! page  goes a bit into why post-release incrementing is preferred. In particular: "Most everybody used to bump the version number just before the release but we've found that bumping just after the release works better because people can explicitly require the version number in HEAD; i.e. if the last release of gtk+ was 2.5.1 and new API is added, its nice for any module that uses that API to immediately require gtk+ 2.5.2." Mainly I would like to see the Evolution version show up as (currently) 2.21.3 when I'm running the latest release and 2.21.4 when I'm running from HEAD, just as a sanity check. Not a huge issue, but for me it would be a time saver.
