      Description

      In most platforms, splitting on the first ‘.’ of an X.Y.Z release would be a sane way of determining the major release, but Ubuntu does its versioning a bit differently.

      Given the Ubuntu release 10.04, the major version isn't actually 10; it's 10.04 and 10.10 isn't a patch release to 10.04. When Ubuntu does do a minor release for a distribution, they add it as the Z part of the X.Y.Z - for example, 14.04.1 should have a major release of 14.04 and a minor release of 1, not 4.
