    Dumb question: what current work when done will cause Dragonfly to be bumped to 6.0? I realize Dragonfly releases are time based – but when current big work would cause a version number bump?

    Making Hammer2 default?

  2. Being at version 5.8 would cause a bump to 6.0, cause it’s a pain to have x.10 numbers mess up sorting.

    Is .10 is messing up sorting then why not start do 5.02, 5.04 etc release naming.

    because they don’t release every week? BSDs stick together. So the trend is, NBSD follows FBSD release numbering convensions and DFBSD follows OBSD’s. OBSD also bumps to .0 after a .9 release.

    so you advise them to have a 5.98 before bumping to a 6.00? why not just dropping the leading digit altogether?

    dillon is not immortal.

  5. x.0y numbering could work, to fix lexical sorting, though sorting by value would have the same problem.
