Debian versioning scheme (r1 vs .1)

Hi list,

This is not meant to be flamebait, but simply something I was thinking
about after reading Joey Hess post to debian-devel-announce regarding
Debian woody 3.0r1.

I am wondering why updates to the Debian GNU/Linux distribution uses the
much alternative versioning syntax, such as 2.2r7, 3.0r1 etc.

In my opinion, 3.0.1 is a much clearer and more commonly used syntax.

..or is it just me who thinks the latter is much nicer?

  - Morten.
