As a concerned user, if LibreOffice is meant a independent office project
derived from the OpenOffice code then why do we still use their version
numbering system.  Wouldn't it be better to start from 1 to reinforce in
peoples minds that we are a separate project
I will suggest another version scheme like the one the Linux distribution Ubuntu uses.

The year and month: 9.04, 9.10, 10.4 and 10.10.

I know it is very difficult to release at a specific month because there could be a lot of issues that postpone a release date.

Maybe it should only be the target to have one major release each year and smaller updates and security releases with minor version numbers:

Yearly major release: 11 and 12
Update release: 11.1, 11.2 and 12.1
Security releases: 11.0.5, 11.1.5, 11.2.5, 12.0.5 and 12.1.5 (security release 5)

Just a suggestion.

The most enjoyable
