[maemo-developers] The issue of version strings

One thing I think it might be worth working on is the user- 
friendliness of the version strings of packages in Extras. We want the  
Application manager to be as friendly and approachable for the average  
user as possible and long incomprehensible lines of alphanumerics are  
a surefire way to scare people off. ;)

So, this is just my humble request that people be considerate of users  
when crafting their version strings and try to it reasonable. Avoiding  
date/svn-based versions would probably be a good idea.
