So lenny will be Debian 5.0. Many people have questioned this choice, given how we onconsistently went ...-2.0-2.1-2.2-3.0-3.1-4.0 in the last decade, but it's the RM's choice and not to be debated. What is to be debated is how to move on from here. I propose that we get rid of our r-releases and simply let the first stable update to lenny be 5.1, followed by 5.2, and so on. lenny+0.5 would logically be 5.5, since it's unlikely that we will have five stable updates out within 1.5/2=0.75 years, and if we do, then lenny+0.5 is late. lenny+1 would be released as 6.0. This would add sense to our versioning scheme (and help avoid those discussions in the future). Instead of long flamewars and floods of AOL posts, I suggest you update http://doodle.ch/8zauai3nqges2ur8 if you're in favour or you oppose.
