I think all distributors will more like X.X.X, just like the bug on bugs.gentoo,

I suggest something like systemtap:

It has formal releases after some important features implemented:


and has a preview snapshot tarball every week,


its upstream SCM is also git, the author use `git tag` to tag a formal
x.y.z release,
and `git archive` to generate the tarball, it's very convenient.

stgt is very similar like it, so I suggest you release a formal 1.0.0 after an
important feature implemented,

Of course, you can now release it as 0.9.0

And really you can do a simple roadmap, just attach each important feature
to a major version, as VTL to 1.0, yyy to 1.1, zzz to 1.2,
Distributors will be happier about this type of upstream.
