Release numbers and revision numbers are independent. Unless you
produce a release for every revision, that is. The "dot version
numbers" are tied to your own public/private release scheme. You must
do this "mapping" yourself because the meaning varies for everyone.

The Subversion revision number is a timestamp, a counter of how many
changes have been made to the repository at a given point in time. It
really should not be used for public versioning, except in places
where information about where the released code was built from.
