Once we clear past the 2.10, 2.12, etc. series, I'd like to go back to keeping things single digits in the major and minor version numbers and when we run out of a single digits bump up the major number (so 3.8.x -> 4.0.x). Number are numbers, but this one confused a lot more people than I expected it would or should so maybe it's good to be sensitive to that after we clear the 2.x series of versions.<ref>{{cite web |url=|title=<nowiki>Re: [Flightgear-devel] reminder: entering feature freeze now</nowiki>|author=Curtis Olson|date=Tue, 25 Jun 2013 14:59:08 -0700}}</ref>|Curtis Olson}}
{{cquote|That sounds OK to me, as it would imply a full release every 2.5 years, give a clear flag ahead of time when we're nearing a major release, and save having these discussions in the future. For reference, with the current plan there will be 4 years between 2.0.0 (Feb 2010) was and 3.0.0 (Feb 2014). <ref>{{cite web |url=|title=<nowiki>Re: [Flightgear-devel] reminder: entering feature freeze now</nowiki>|author=Stuart Buchanan|date=Mon, 08 Jul 2013 14:42:16 -0700}}</ref>|Stuart Buchanan}}
