RE: Re: per-project version numbers - a way to support them? (without changing Subversion!?)

If that's truly the case then people like yourselves need to explain
themselves better. You said in a previous message: "It's not like the
numbers have any significant meaning". That's a pretty strong statement
of non-meaning since significant is a fuzzy word in English. The
revision number is purely a way of saying "state of repository and a
certain point in time". That is always significant to me.

It's not that it isn't meaningful so much as people try to attach
meaning that isn't there. It's really just a matter of people
understanding what they are dealing with instead of trying to twist it
so they can use it as something it isn't.
