[arch-releng] 2009.02 name ideas

I think it would be wise to stay with the version numbering that we have
right now, for example 2009.02 for the release coming this month. If any bug
is found in the 2009.02-1 release, there can come a 2009.02-2 release, and
so forth. The development versions for the 2009.02 series would be called
2009.02-alpha1, 2009.02-beta and 2009.02-rc, etcetera. The final version
would be 2009.02-1.

This way we would never run out of version numbers, one can see in the blink
of an eye when a release was made, and this way of version numbering is very
consistent and logical. The only downside that I can find about this way of
versioning is what Dieter Plaetinck said on 2 februari, that it could
interfere with flyspray references, that need to be updated in case a
release can't be made in a certain month.
