I've written down the proposed policy for versioning here:


It turned out there was a previous page written by Bulat that contained 
essentially this policy, but it wasn't linked from anywhere which explains 
why it was overlooked.  I took the liberty of rewriting the text.

I took into account Ross's suggestions that the major version should have 
two components, and that we need to be more precise about what it means to 
extend an API.

After a round of editing, we can start to link to this page from 
everywhere, and start migrating packages to this scheme where necessary.
