How would you expect a piece of software to figure out if something is a
major or a minor change?

Generally, "major" changes are made up of many small, "minor" changes.
If you commit after each "minor" change, and create a tag after each
"major" change, you'll have exactly the distinction you want.

Or you could just write good log messages.
