When is the version number changed in the config/version file?
Is that value the version 1) of the next release being prepared,
or 2) of the last release?
This is a concern for packaging. I would like to make two series
of Debian packages: xenomai, libxenomai, etc. for the official
releases, and xenomai-svn, libxenomai-svn, etc. for periodical
extracts from the svn repository after releases.
The problem is: what versions to give to the *-svn packages? For
instance, the current value in config/version is 2.0.93.
The current xenomai-svn package would then have version
2.0.93+svn20060306 (or something like that).
Using versioning scheme 1), the next xenomai package would have
version 2.0.93. This is bad, because the xenomai-svn could not
be replaced by the next xenomai package:
2.0.93 < 2.0.93+svn20060306.
Even if xenomai (official release package) is more recent.
Using versioning scheme 2) works, because the next xenomai
package would have version 2.0.94 (or 2.1 or...), and hence
would have priority over the older xenomai-svn packages.
So, could someone confirm that what is currently done is scheme
2), i.e. the version in config/version is modified just before
tagging the repository and releasing?
