[SailfishDevel] Release versioning best practice?

As far as I understand, the notation used is
major.minor.patch-packageversion, with the packageversion  reserved
for the packager (changes to spec/yaml/ files).

Since you are both the packager and the developer, you can always leave it to 0.
Maybe, if you only fix packaging issues without touching the code, you
could bump it instead of the patch version.

I would bump the patch version number, and reset the packaging number to 0.

Best regards,
