Subject: RFC: future virtio spec numbering

What should we call the next version of the virtio spec?

The issue is that unfortunately current
spec versions all have "latest" link to

Also, Google search for virtio still tends to turn up csprd01
and that has the above link in it.

I asked about adding links to

but did not get a response so apparently no go.


1. virtio 1.0 cs05.
    Pros: latest link will point to the correct version.
    Cons: seems to be confusing to people - 1.0 is a product so one
    would expect 1.0 be in bugfixes-only mode at this point.
    And what would we call a bugfix branch if we ever made one?

2. virtio 1.1
    Pros: internet searches will start finding the new version (although
    there's a risk it will get struct at csprd01 again).
    Cons: latest links from 1.0 will not point at this one.

3. virtio 2.0
    Pros: publicity. people will know it's a new spec.
    Also, this leaves an option to do a bugfix release and call it 1.1.
    Cons: people might get confused thinking it's not backwards compatible.

Let's discuss here a bit, then do a ballot.
