Description (last modified by tomek)

Jeremy proposed that we should set the version string in our software to something. Right now it is whatever the last release was, or sometimes updated since then, but it is not helpful and sometimes misleading. Some notes are available in our meeting minutes.

Ideally we would set the version string to something like:


We would need a way to override this on our release branches, of course.

If we cannot do that, then possibly using just "git" or "master" as the version identifier is okay.

We currently use X.Y.Z-git for master, where X.Y.Z is the last release.
