I'm struggling to find a good release numbering scheme for annotateit. At the moment, I'm sticking with the common x.x.x numbering scheme, but it feels pretty arbitrary. I set targets for features that I want in annotateit, and when I achieve those targets, I bump the version number. But I'm not confident that those numbers actually signify anything to anyone.
One that I've seen that I think is fairly interesting is using the date of release in the filename of the distribution, but I don't think the dates convey enough information either. Maybe I need to settle on a hybrid release numbering scheme that would convey my opinion as to the reliability of the software, and the date it was released on. e.g. 0.20030728 might indicate a really unstable release, whereas 1.20030728 would indicate a more stable release.
CMM stands for Capability Maturity Model, not Code maturity model, as I had mistakenly assumed, and refers to the capabilities of the organization developing the software rather than the maturity of the software itself.
