Suggestion: be more explicit that the version in the protocol is a 32-bit integer, that 0.6.0 is represented by the number 60000, and that the 'subversion' field is an arbitrary string. --Gavin Andresen 19:19, 16 December 2011 (GMT)

Just as a point of information; "git describe" output solves the problem of non-incremental committish. It does this by providing a base version code (the most recent tag name) the number of commits past that tag and then a little bit of the commitish for the revision in question. --Andyparkins 11:45, 9 December 2011 (GMT)
