That's how I originally built all my packages:


I'm good with that numbering an rpm and pacman package managers will like that
much better too.

I still think the "have everyone assume the vanishing parts of '3.5.'14" so they
understand what/where TDE came from is a  ..s t r e t c h..

I know you have a vested interest in that name, but like I said, I don't, and
never have, seen the logic in releasing R14 as 14whatever. I saw the value in
calling development code R14 verses 3.5.13 so we clearly knew what body of code
was being referred to internally, but as an official version, I think the name
is misplaced.

Like I said, I'm a team player, I'll defer to whatever you want to call it, but
as we have just been through discussing versioning, we better be darn sure we
like whatever it is officially released as, because that is damn sure what it
will be from now on....

I vote for something more logical and in-step with standard versioning, but I'll
go with whatever, just be sure that is what we want this desktop known as from
now on.
