"If you wish", so until now it hasn't been an error to not have one. Has
this changed ?
Nothing changed. See my reply to Jakub's email, please.
Pre-release build's release should start with '0.'.
- a pre-release build is detected with these patterns: "test", "alpha", "beta", "rc", "[\.0-9]a[\.0-9]", "b[0-9]+", "snap", "pre", "dev", "build", "bzr", "cvs", "svn", "git", "hg", "trunk", "branch" - release should start with .0, but generally it can start with any number as long as it's bumped before each build.

But of course we also have post-release snapshot packages, so if
alliance-5.0-26.20070718snap is a svn/cvs snapshot *post* 5.0 release
then its be perfectly correct, right ?

That's a good point, I was never thinking about post-release snapshot packages, always just about pre-release ones.
Thanks for catching that.
