   I've decided on a version numbering scheme.  Sorry, dates are out.
   As much as dates are interesting, they create problems when dealing
   with multiple branches.  More importantly, they do not impart the
   same sense of progress that real version numbers impart and, even
   more importantly, all kernels are moving targets and tagged with
   their build dates anyway so having a release date AND a build date
   is simply too confusing.

   EVEN numbers denote releases.  e.g. 1.0, 1.2, 1.4, 1.6
   ODD numbers denote work-in-progress.  e.g. 1.1, 1.3, 1.5, 1.7

Isn't that how Linux does it? *cringe*
