    I would just flip a coin.

    All I would suggest is be consistent and avoid too many decimals if it’s expected to be said regularly e.g. 3.1.4.1

    It would have 2 decimals at most eg 3.0.0

    You're welcome. For me it all just comes down to how much support the program is going to have after release - long term is always :

    major. Minor. Bugfix. (3.4.2)

    Short term :

    Major. Minor (3.4)

    For one offs they usually just get code names - could really be anything and really depends on the program so if it was something related to the program... I just like hearing people saying things like "I'm having a problem with Donkey... Capybara was much more stable"

    If your working on your own don't take shit from any one about it, if it's with other people make sure everyone is on the same page

    For me it's important to have the less ammount of digits possible, it's easier to remember which version is which.
