Re: Moving tickets out of 4.0 post freeze

I’d like to propose we don’t do Semver.  Back when we did this before, there wasn’t any clear distinction between a major and a minor release.  They were both infrequent, both big, and were treated as majors for EOL'ing support for older releases.  This must surely have been confusing for users, and I’m not sure what we got from it?

Why don’t we keep it simple, and just have major.patch?  So we would release simply ‘4’ now, and the next feature release would be ‘5'.
