Could you give me an example of this? (Imho this scheme is braindamaged...) I've never seen any projects with this versioning.
The Linux kernel. kernel-2.6.0testN
There are tonnes of projects that do this however, so I'm kindof surprised if you've never seen any. Do you use the GNU hurd kernel perhaps? ;o)
