[Qgis-developer] What's up with the 2.0.2 designation?

As a user I'm very fond of the GeoServer model. I believe they have a
master branch which releases 2.x version every 6 months or so and includes
big features. Once a month they release a point release (2.3.x) which
contains bug fixes backported from the master branch as well as some lesser
"features" that have been in the master branch for a month or two.

This means there are regular releases and as I user I know what to expect
when. Much as I like both QGIS and GeoServer, both have a considerable
number of bugs and regular bug-fix releases help ameliorate this. Users
shouldn't be hitting the same bug in their stable release that was fixed in
master 12 months ago, that's something Open Source can do better than
"E$RI" (Hi Tim :-) ) and their commercial ilk.

Just my 2p,
