[openstack-dev] [Solum] Version scheme

I'm not a big fan of using date information in the version number. Is there an advantage to doing that? Using a model like 0.0.1 makes it easier to communicate.

A better approach might be to use  Major.Minor.Revision.Build. If we want to use dates, Year.Month.Day.Build  or Year.Minor.Revision.Build might be a better approach. Do any openstack projects use the build number in the version? or is there a way for the build process to insert the build number in there?

Hello all,

We need to decide on version scheme that we are going to use.

Monty Taylor said the following in one of the comments for review [1]:

Setting a version here enrolls solum in managing its version in a
pre-release versioning manner, such that non-tagged versions will
indicated that they are leading up to 0.0.1. If that's the model solum
wants to do (similar to the server projects) then I recommend replacing
0.0.1 with 2014.1.0.
