I'm not sure what you're asking. A few people (myself not included)
have voiced a preference for reserving odd middle numbers for
development snapshots and testing releases, and using only even middle
numbers for production releases. That's why I said 1.2.0, 1.4.0, and
1.6.0, rather than 1.1.0, 1.2.0, and 1.3.0 as I would personally have
called them. I wasn't skipping anything.

Justin was arguing that we should have production, public, stable,
new-featureful releases every 1-2 months. So in September 2004 we could
expect to have put out three or four of them after 1.0, in his world.
Thus, 1.2.0, 1.4.0, and 1.6.0.
