  I hate this notation 1.1.1-1. Half of the package tools out there
  fails miserably because of the -1. is ok with me.

  Usually, the forth digit is for errors in the packaging. Bugs
  (are so security issue) are the third one. Feature the second one.
  Major rewrite the first one. This seems to be pretty much a standard,
  that at first glance you know if you have to update or not.
