Reply To: New release / Version numbering
Yes, I was referring to the release numbering. git doesn’t even know revision control version numbers anymore, as Linus Torvalds considers them not to give any additional information. All that counts for him is whether a patch is included in the repository or not. It is possible to tag a certain status of the repository with git, e.g. the release candidate or the release.
I don’t think one wants to have version numbers of the revision control system in the files. There’s no need for this. For the release version, I guess one has to bump it by hand, but it’s not a big deal as this should happen only for the release.
