This should be done like what we do with CMake.

Working version is odd numbered:


Release version is even:


When I create a new release I do the following:

1. create a branch CMake-2-6
2. debug the branch.  When it is ready, create a read only tag CMake-2-6-1.

CMake-2-6-1 can never change at this point.

3. put bug fixes on the CMake-2-6 branch until ready for CMake-2-6-2
4. When ready create a new tag CMake-2-6-2.
