I know that various OS projects use different versioning conventions, 
e.g. odd numbers are stable releases and even numbers are development 
releases.  The above quote is a little mind-boggling. V. 1.3.39 is 
being bug-fixed (=patched, maintained) and is the stable release.  V. 
1.3.5 is being developed.  So what is the status of 1.3.4?  A 
dead-end branch, stable, a big mistake, a dev version or what?  I 
think this question is what lies behind the remark "Too many releases".
