Versioning scheme

This repository follows PEP-440 versioning scheme. All releases must use a X.Y segment version which signifies a final project release and is compatible with Semantic Versioning. The versions must be numbered in a consistently increasing fashion. Major X will never need to be increased unless the application is completely rewritten. Minor Y shall be increased on each release. A Patch or additional segments, as described in SemVer, shall not be used.

Release procedure

To make a new release:

  1. Find the next available minor version among the whole set of already present tags in the repository.

  2. Create an annotated tag from master branch in GitLab with a commit message:

    Tag version 'X.Y'
