No-one contacted me, either. But that's OK, since it wasn't my
choice. I really couldn't care less what the number was, in any case.
FWIW, I've noticed that "3.1" is already used in quite a lot of
documentation and on websites with articles relating to Debian. It
was announced quite some time ago, and so it would be rather
inconsiderate [gross understatement] to change it at this late stage.
Have you considered the huge impact of changing the version number?
It's to no-one's advantage to do this.
