No 1.0 for Rails


#1

We should consider staying with the 0.x.x version numbering for a
variety of reasons, but really it boils down to one main reason: Beta
is the new in thing. I’m typing this message from Gmail(beta) Beta
says that you are on the cutting edge, that you’re “with it.”

With futher consideration, I believe that we should further revise the
system to use negative version numbers. This will futher underscore
that Rails is moving in a new direction, one never seen before in the
history of IT. I hope we can come together as a community and label
the next version of Rails " - 0.0.0.15 "

And for vaporware - we can use imaginary numbers…

Negative numbers eh? OK, here’s what I think of your idea:

I prefer infinitesimals. Even mathematicians think those are made up.

at the risk of appearing combative - may i ask if you are actively
submitting
patches? if so disregard the following:

let’s not forgot that 1.0, like all the other versions, will be free and
open.

kind regards.

Is my calendar broken or something? I could have sworn we’ve done
Halloween and Thanksgiving, are getting ready for Christmas and New
Years, and are doing preliminary planning for Valentine’s Day and St.
Patrick’s Day? Did I miss all of those and go straight to April Fool’s
Day?

Actually it would also need it’s own build of Subversion which will
basically remove entries from the changelog (because it is less
software) and going to count the revisions backwards, so that Rails
-1.4 can also sport a shiny -3200 revision number.

When the revisions will cross zero you will be able to say that Rails
has done a complete iteration.
