JIRA: to use "8.x" or not?

david.w.smiley@gmail.com
In JIRA, should we bother with having "version.x" versions or not, and only have, say 8.1, 8.2, etc.?  I seem to be schizophrenic on this having thought we did things one way and recently thought the other.  Our release process wiki page[1] makes no mention of such releases near where JIRA is discussed AFAICT, and instead I see explicit mention of using the minor releases numbers.  I'm baffled why I'm on record for saying the inverse only 6 weeks ago.  In practice, it appears Lucene side uses these "version.x"[2].  Solr doesn't at the moment only because of some recent cleanup.

FWIW I think we shouldn't bother but who knows what I'll think in a month ;-P

I think that indistinct versions are, generally speaking, a bad idea.
We even have a version number on "master" in Jira these days, and I
think that's a good thing.

Thanks,
Shawn
