No matter what version we talk about. Versioning is done by hand and has no rules to follow.

6.1,6.2 ... 6.9,6.10,6.11 ... Math would say 6.2 is higher than 6.11 ... Versioning does not need to follow math or logic. A version can even decrease when a developer decides his changes are not working and he reverts back. It's a string that is formed after a logic decided by every dev on his own. And every rule you write for Minion to detect a certain pattern of versioning will fail on most version numbers. So in the end you have hundreds of rules you have to weight and it will still be a guess that might fail.
