What form do we fix? I suggest the following:

def qgisMinimumVersion():
 return '1.0.0'

Where returned string contains two or three (both cases are allowed) integer 
values separated by points. 

The important question is if we expect one of the values to be more than 9. If 
not, we can just compare them as strings. But '10' < '9', so if version 
1.0.10 or 1.10.0 is expected, we need to extract each level and compare 
separately as integer. In this case we should be prepared that the plugin 
author may put some suffix to this string, what might raise exception. In the 
former case such suffix will be confusing too, because 
'1.0preview2' > '1.0'.

And for repository metadata I suggest the following form:
