Well, since I wrote the original GEP about versioning, I can comment on that. Cairo versioning is interesting (it is somehow following the old linux kernel versioning) but not really relevant for GNOME : the idea behing the GEP for versioning was to be able to spot immediatly when a tarball was released, without having to dig into release date and so on. It worked quite well. If you really want to go into cairo versioning, I suggest you create a nano version (ie 18.104.22.168), so it doesn't interact with GNOME versioning, but I don't think it is worth the trouble. -- Frederic Crozat <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Mandriva _______________________________________________ Evolution-hackers mailing list Evolutionemail@example.com http://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/evolution-hackers
