I might send more reminders in the future whenever it might get

and stabilized with it. 2.1.x will be it for 3.30.

You could do semantic versioning (which has clear benefits) without odd
minor versions (which is going to be super confusing), surely?

Hmm, I see 2 ways to make that happen:
- As usual, bump by 1 during unstable, bump by 1 for .0. The first
bump may make sense (depends on whether there's actual API additions,
tending to be scarce in Tracker), but the second bump would be rather
artificial as there'd be no API additions or substantial modifications
at the time.
- Bump to next even number directly, suffix versions by "-alpha.X" or
somesuch to convey they're pre-release. (we should probably do this
even if bumping by 1)

Reading point 7 in, of these two I find the second to fit
better as there's no minor bumps without actual changes involved, but
it's maybe a bit late for it now. If the R-T vastly prefers to avoid
the confusion, I have stuff in the queue I can rush this cycle to make
a 2.2 that'd make all of us happy for now.
