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

Thank you.
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"

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

    Omg do you know how much money I would spend if that was a thing? Especially if you get to assemble the gundams somewhat like those old model toy kits. The answer is zero dollars. I would spend zero dollars. It would still be so good, though.
