version numbering

Hi,

Currently, the TSVN version is 1.7.6 while svn is at 1.7.4. So we're two
micro versions apart.
This apparently causes some problems on the svn mailing lists.

It was suggested that svn therefore would skip two micro versions for
their next release to catch up with TSVN, but that suggestion was
rejected. Instead TSVN should instead change its version numbering to
avoid confusion.
The discussion on the svn dev list is here:
http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.version-control.subversion.devel/135106

So instead of our next release being 1.7.7, it would be 1.7.6-2 and when
svn 1.7.7 gets out, we would be at 1.7.6-3, and finally with svn 1.7.8
we then would also be at 1.7.8.

I'm not sure if this won't cause problems for us, since our users are
used to only three digit numbers and might overlook the '-2' when
reporting issues.

So what do you think? Should we change our version numbering? Or just go
on as we did before?

Stefan
