Thunderbird 126.96.36.199 (Windows/20071031)
and I (with my 2 cents) would prefer "normal" versioning, like 2.0 or
something like that (with 2.0RC1 for reelase candidate).

Who is this "we"? ;-)
Such enumeration of versions is undesirable for example in my Gentoo
It is impossible to correctly compare such versions at package upgrade.
The examples of good version numbering:
1.4-r2 (2 - is a release of package)
200711-r468 (468 - is a SVN revision)
20071122-r468 (468 - is a SVN revision)
Can we come to the consensus with KiCad versioning?
My propositions of numbering:
or maybe 2.0
P.S. This is not a criticism, but a requirement for some compatibility.
Hi Dick and Igor,
(Just my 2 cents.) I thought that tags were not meant to be changed at all
as they represent a frozen release. In my understanding, I was expecting a
tag (for the current release) and a branch for future bug fixes. The
branch can be named kicad-2007-Nov or whatever but the tag should better
be a number (friendlyness with most package managers). I'd personnaly vote
for '20071122' as that's how past releases were done already.
