Use whatever you want as long as it is monotonically increasing. No
requirement for "0.0". You can use YYYYMMDD or YYYY.MM.DDDD if you wish.
If upstream tags their releases like this it is even better to follow it.=


The idea of using "0.0." in front is a "just in case" upstream follows a
new tag scheme, but we already have PORTEPOCH for those situations. Why
add an arbitrary 0.0 into the tag if upstream doesn't use that?
