   So I propose the following change in the Automake versioning scheme:

Sounds good.  Going further, you could maybe define notation (described
in HACKING) for categories of changes (backward-{in}compatible, etc) and
methodically use them in the ChangeLog entries.  This would be both
informative to the user, and helpful to prevent mistakes (by casual
contributors :-D).

   I also propose the following change to the branching scheme currently
   implemented in the Automake Git repository:

These details should also be explained in HACKING.

   to publicize the new versioning scheme

     - ??? (suggestions welcome)

Maybe cut a release that changes only the version number?  Personally i
would find that to be not particularly useful, but others might welcome
the explicitness.
