You're right using a N.5 notation for instable work in progress is ok to me
2.0.0-Mx should indeed be used for an almost frozen API (sometimes minor changes that can't
be postponed are needed)
N.0.x are and should be bug fixes

By drawing aside N.1 and N.2 do you mean we will only do bug fixes on the 2.0 branch and new
features will only 
go to 2.5 branch ? I'm not saying i disagree i just want to make your statement more clear.

May I suggest that we use a clear notation for 'unstable' versions? With the current one (ie,
2.0.0-Mx), people tend to think that it's stable (stable <=> API is frozen).

What about using a N.5 for unstable versions, and N.0 for stable versions? For instance,
2.5 will be unstable, and will be renamed 3.0-RC1 as soon as we have frozen the API.

IMO, having N.1, N.2 etc is not necessarily a good idea. There is some confusion between N.0
and N.1 versions, as N.0.x are already bug fixes.
