Not resetting the number would be very confusing to everyone, including ourselves. The current scheme is actually pretty logical. A new namespace per Jumbo is a good idea BUT as you already noticed, we sometimes forget to change namespace before uploading. > Also, I think we need to use another table on the wiki page for the many > numbered patches that are meant for inclusion in next jumbo - perhaps > below the table with patches aimed at end-users.

And maybe that would solve the forgotten-namespace problem: If the *page* for jumbo-8 incremental patches is already in a :john:john-1.7.8:jumbo8 namespace, I presume any uploaded files to that page will default to that namespace too? > Of course, git will be the proper solution... but the above suggestions > may help for now. Though I would prefer it to stay an utter mess, forcing you to put up a git repo ;-) magnum
