10 days ago I saw DRBD "0.8" (whatever it really is) as part of SUSE 9.3.

I like to see the original version numbers in the distries, with an 
attached minor (if necessary).

And I would like it more, if developers change the first digit in case 
of major redesigns, the second digit for added features, the third digit 
for bugfixes.

E.g. the upcoming DRBD 0.8 should better be something like 3.0.0, 
0.8-alpha could be 3.0.1, 0.8-[beta|pre8] -> 3.0.8, first release of 0.8 
-> 3.1.1 etc.

0.8 is understatement;-)

Just my 2 cents.
