Re: Summary[2]: dpkg and alpha/beta versioning

	It just dawned on me that you may have meant that the ~ have
 special meaning to the _humans_ and tell them that the numbers after
 the ~ are meant to be the next version up. 

	Hmm. I think I would prefer 2.0.7-2.0.8pre1 or some thing to
 2.0.7~1, just because the former is more obvious than the latter to
 people who are not aware of hidden semantics of the ~.

	2.0.8~pre1 is even better, I think. Anything that better fits
 the principle of least surprise is better.

 The more you speak of yourself, the more you are likely to lie.  --
