I hate version numbers because it is confusing.
And not easy to remember (for me)
I like to identify a release by time, 
or specifically "things" with an event.

example 1 month back release, or exactly, 
the release when I was doing xxxyyy project.
or the release before I went for vacation/xyz holiday

I get around this by making the version number 
format as yyyy.mmdd.0
when I want to make another release immediately I wait for a day
But if it is urgent I make one with format yyyy.mmdd.1 etc

so pl. dont ask me to change my format
