[maemo-community] [Bugsquad] Bugzilla Version scheme

Hej hej,

I'd like to bring https://bugs.maemo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=3747 to the
attention of the Bugsquad and ask for further opinions.

The current situation is confusing.
http://repository.maemo.org/pool/maemo4.1.1/ (4.2008.36-5 is SSU2)
provides what we've been calling 4.1.2 in the Version and Target
Milestone field (4.2008.30-2 was 4.1.1 and SSU1).

We could switch to using the "x.year.week-y" scheme in Bugzilla, but
Bugzilla does not support arbitrary sorting of the Version field, so
this will also be confusing.

Hence my current proposal is to use a long (but less error-prone)
Version and Target Milestone string like "4.1-2 (4.2008.36-5)" instead
of current "4.1.2" (note the hyphen instead of the dot), but I wonder if
that brings up other problems if Nokia decides to also provide flash
images (and introduce their own versioning scheme for theme, like "4.2")
in addition to SSU updates.

Comments welcome. Pick your poison. ;-)
