1. Whether one snapshot is more recent than another snapshot.
2. Whether a snaphot is more recent than an official release, and
I prefer that the release numbers are monotonically increasing.
I package versions of sane for Debian and I want the automatic
updating to work flawlessly, whether I package an official release or
a snapshot. Currently, I am using a version number of
1.0.1-1999-10-21, which uses the CVS tag DEVEL_1_9. Perhaps 1.0.1-1.9
would make more sense as a version number. By including the 1.0.1
version number, I can make sure that 1.0.2, when it gets release, will
be greater than 1.0.1-1999-10-21-5. It is nice to know that 1.0.2 >
1.0.1-1999-10-19-21 > 1.0.1.
I don't really know how the versions should be numbered, but I like
including the 1.0.1 in the release number.
Are there any other ideas out there.
