We will follow the convention laid out in the book Produccing Open Source Software whereas, we will use three number components in the version name:
There will only be one packaging system which is a compressed .zip obtained from GitHub. We will create a list of milestone and official version tags on this page.
We have decided to do that because (as can be seen in this whole project) we believe that each part in the whole system must do their work well, there is no sense in creating a wiki when dokuWiki is exceptional, it is better to integrate dokuWiki and mantisBT together than add that into the issue tracker. With that in mind, the effort to create an automatic installable package is overkill when there are projects that prepare exceptional WAMP stacks with all the problems resolved and when Linux just gives it to you by default. All we need to concentrate our efforts on is creating exceptional coreBOS functionality.
In general the master branch will always be a stable version of the product, we will be developing fixes and features in other branches and only add the code to the master branch when we are satisfied with it's stability, so you can always download the master branch for the latest changes. That said, be careful as we you will have to patch the changes to stable milestones yourself, we will only create migrations paths from one milestone version to the next.
