I've been thinking about the current kind of the numbering of revisions and I have come to the conclusion, that it is somehow inconclusive. Instead of starting with the number 1 for first revision, this first revision gets the number 2. It's absolutely weird. It may be true, that this number 2 indicate on the second and simultaneously revised version of the program, but it still remains the first actual revision.
Therefore I have two suggestions, how the numbering can be performed more useful.
- Beginning with Number 1 after publishing of a new release
One possibility may be, that one begin with Number 1 after publishing of a new release. This also is a coherent numbering of revisions.
- Consecutive numbering after the publication of the intial release
Another variant may be, that one begin with a consecutive numbering after the publication of the intial release. Additionally should any revision are listed with a brief description.
Personally I would prefer the second variant.
