Hi Bastien, Achim,
I have added you to this thread to get help on how to make it easy to identify if the current version of org-mode is the dev build.
As of now, M-x org-version shows "Org-mode version 8.3.4 .." for both master and maint build of org-mode. Would it be possible to have the version show something like "Org-mode version 8.3.4-dev .." for master branch builds?
That allows a quick visual confirmation if someone is using the dev or stable build. Also it would be useful in creating version checking elisp wrappers around not-yet-released org-mode code in personal configs.
Something like below would then be possible
;; new style
;; old style

Deciding the next version number ahead of time isn't always right from
the beginning of the branch. I guess a "dev" suffix should be enough.
However, I don't know how to change the release tag, which is defined in
a somewhat convoluted way. Bastien or Achim probably know how to do it.
