There is a numbering scheme, best let Noel of Serge explain it.. my understanding is is..
current HEAD is v3, working towards release v3.0, first alpha will be 3.0a1, first release
candidate will be 3.0rc1
first released version will be 3.0.0

Current stable is v2, currently v2.2, first alpha would be 2.2a1 first release candidate 2.2rc1
Small fixes, eg bugfix, might be released as 2.2.1, larger changes would result in 2.3

I'm not sure that "@version 2.2.0" matching the release version makes much sense, because
it means we'd have to change it for no reason when the version changes.

Otherwise I think its a reasonable idea.
