I've tried to realize your recommendations in
http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/RyeVoting. And I think they are
helpfull. The date to see what happends (or not) lately and the number
to indicate major or minor changes.
One more request: Could we use a version number or at least a date to
set a version for i18n.tgz / i18n.zip. I have always to call the
directory index http://www.pmwiki.org/pub/pmwiki/ to see the date, or
estimate the version, of these files and without a number I have to set
a inofficial on local stored international language packs or i have to
diff two directories to see which is the old one. Just a suggestion. ;-)
