shortly before I go on holiday, I thought it is a good time to start a discussion about version numbers. GCC recently changed their version number scheme and it might be something that fits also quite good for RTEMS.  The major releases are indicated by the left-most number followed by a dot and then we have 0 for the development version, 1 for the first major release, 2 for the first bugfix release, and so on.  So for example the next major release of RTEMS would be 5.1 and the master branch currently 5.0.
