Strange program version numbering in KiCad


Greetings, all.

I just ran across something odd with the version number shown by the KiCad program(s).

I compiled and installed git master. When I ran it the version number reported is As I also compile and run the 5.1 version I thought I had a mix up when I did the compile. When I checked my 5.1 install it has as the version number.

I would expect git master to report a version number higher than the 5.1 branch. Perhaps 5.2, or even as high as 5.9 as it is going to be released as 6 something, IIRC.
