This package just numbers their tarballs using the subversion release
number.  For example, 'r8' and 'r11':


As far as I'm aware they are not planning on using "real" version
numbers at any time in the future, nor have they used real version
numbers in the past.

I don't understand which if any of these guidelines apply to this


In particular, what should the Version be?  (And while we're at it,
what should the Release be?)
