Something which we discussed in the KDE Quality BoF and is of interest to the 
KDE Release Team is the numbering of unstable versions.

Up to now we have been using 4.N.8* and 4.N.9* for alpha, beta and rc. The 
problem with those is it is difficult when you get a report on 4.8.85 to know if 
the user is running beta1, beta2, rc1 or something else.

To address this we proposed the following numbering scheme:

4.N.7{1,2,3} => N+1 alpha 1, 2, 3
4.N.8{1,2,3} => N+1 beta 1, 2, 3
4.N.9{1,2,3} => N+1 rc 1, 2, 3

With this scheme, 4.10 alpha 1 would be 4.9.71, 4.10 beta 2 would be 4.9.82
