The 4-digit version numbering suffers from confusion, e.g. 0.7.1 vs
0.7.0.2 (which one is "better"?)
Just to summarize the two proposals I made in the meeting:
Move the i18n release to "0.7.5", and release interim bug fixes as
0.7.1, 0.7.2, 0.7.3, 0.7.4.
Alternatively, change the "0.7.1" bugzilla target release to
someting like "0.7i18n"
- number it appropriately when it's ready, streaming the interim
bug fixes into it, making it just the next 0.7.x release.
P.S. Hooray for the reply-to change!
