Re[4]: Setting head revision number

From: Felix Brack <fb_at_ltec.ch>

I only have one release. Due to my laziness it's 1.0.0.136. I would
now like to create a tag 1.0.0.136 in the repository that reflects the
release running on the customers machine. If I tag now, the tags name
(identifying the version number) would not correspond with the
repositories revision number (which currently is 86).

All parts of the version number have predefined meanings. In short:

1.0.0.136
| | | |_ the repositories revision number
| | |____ bugfix number
| |______ minor number
|________ major number
