I don't see what's wrong with large numbers, it's not like there's a shortage of numbers. And for what it's worth the only reason we we were on 7.x at all is that we went from 1.0.5 to 6.0 -- precisely because it was our sixth release. If we had kept on that track we would have been on the same plan Tom is proposing now. One alternative to really drive home that the new scheme is a change to people would be to do the same again. By my count 9.6 will be our 28th release. We could jump from 9.6 to Postgres 29.0. (That would have the side benefit that we could retroactively number all the previous releases in a consistent way if we wanted to) -- greg -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
