There's nothing wrong with Drupal's versioning system. If you used the KDE
"standard" you'd be around version 16 or so by now.

But most people expect what Steven suggested so people are misled by their
expectations...and they have no real reason to expect something else.

You DON'T have to change it. You DO have to expect the same confusion every
version change as the user (NOT the developer) community grows.

Not that there hasn't been enough discussion and plans laid to cover every
complaint made in the last few days. You ARE addressing upgrades through the
install system. There's been discussion of core vs verified vs "Wild West"
contributions. You're working on install profiles, which will also be
maintained via update.php, I guess.

What else...being nice to end users? Does anyone REALLY need advice on how
that's done?

That's my biweekly contribution to non-coding subjects.
