Re: Version numbering for release DECISION!

-WORKING Will indicate a build baesd on our current stable tag

As an often confused user, I find this label confusing. It is vague and subjective.
DEVEL, as other have suggested, would be a much better fit, IMHO.

-STABLE Will indicate a build based on a post-release branch.

Why not state it? PRODUCTION

This way, it is crystal clear for the user/administrator, and it helps simplify his work.

naming should be clear for the user/administrator first, and if possible to the developers. The latter will spend energy to get informed once, for the former, its a management hassle.

less important, following the same rule, CURRENT could become UNTESTED.

for once, there is the occasion to make it perfectly fit. Lets not miss it.

best regards and congratulations for the awesome work already done.
