Well, I use mixed release incrementing :-). I basically follow what
Pierre-Luc did - that is, post-release increment for 0.x releases and
pre-release (or better at-the-time-of-the-release) increment for 0.x.y
releases (libchamplain isn't unique in this respect, other libraries
do the same too). The problem with post release increment is that you
have to know what the next "y" will be - but you can never be sure you
won't need one more release candidate. And also the situation before
changing "x" cannot be described neither as pre- nor as post-release
increment (you basically have to make a pre-release increment when
changing e.g. 0.5 to 0.6 even if you use post-release incrementing).

I think I'll provide a patch for it - that's the best way to convince people.

By the way, where can I find the dependency info for gnome, e.g. to
see what programs use libchamplain and which version?
