How to name versions

There are no absolute rules to naming versions, but there are best practices.

The version names you choose should be a simple name (such as "v1") that provides a sequence. The sequence approach allows you to organize your versions in a logical manner that makes sense to you.

The version need not be numeric, nor be specified using the “v[x]” syntax. Alternatives that you find meaningful can be used, such as dates or project names. The only criteria is that they be flexible to change as the versions change.
