Subject: Re: [docbook-tc] Proposed change to scheme versioning

Sounds reasonable to me to keep the versions in sync. We'll have a little bit of work to do to communicate this out.

If we start incorporating some of the RFEs, that will generate a new number. In your proposal, that is handled by the -# correct? For example, Publishers v5.1 would be the base. Any changes would be Publishers v5.1-1, right?

Are there any OASIS naming conventions we need to follow? For example, the original publishers spec was:

would we want to use something like: 

OR should we put the version number at the beginning:

Hi folks,

We're about to issue DocBook V5.1b5. Which might be used to make DocBook Publishers V1.1b3.
Or maybe Simplified DocBook V1.3b1. Or...oh, this is insane!

I propose a new versioning mechanism:

DocBook V5.1b5.
DocBook XInclud V5.1b5.
DocBook Assembly V5.1b5.
DocBook Publishers V5.1b5-1.
Simplified DocBook V5.1b5-1.

If we fix a bug in Publishers, that'll make V5.1b5-2. If we fixed a
tiny little typo, we could even consider V5.1b5-1.1 I suppose.

When DocBook V5.1 is released, then we'll make Publishers V5.1-1, etc.

It's not perfect, but it sure seems like an improvement to me.
