   > (a) What is the minimum required version for Taler Exchange?

   The general answer is:

   For any Taler a.b.c-component, the dependencies are on (at
   least) the respective a.b.*-versions. So merchant-0.8.4
   generally should be OK with all exchange-0.8.*-versions. That
   said, there can be specific instances where this is not the
   case (that should be specified in the release-notes in this

   Note that there is _also_ the protocol versioning, which
   works differently. Here, the version syntax is 8:4:0 and
   follows GNU libtool (current:revision:age).


   In practice, it is a bit MORE crazy, as our update procedure
   for the protocol versioning can be a bit more involved. I
   think it is already discussed somewhere, maybe in Florian's
   thesis? Don't recall.

OK.  I'll document 0.8.0 as the minimum then.  However...

   We generally post about releases in the 'news' section on
   Taler.net (which also has an RSS feed), and on this list.  So
   far, we only posted 'major' releases on info-gnu.  We could
   change that.

... it seems that the News section does not mention 0.8.0 (or
0.8.1) -- tags for which i see in the exchange.git repo, and
tarballs in the download directories.  I suggest we post an
announcement on 0.8.1 at least, to "drive eyeballs", like they
say (ugh -- webspeak :-D).

There's no reason we can't post in both places, w/ one pointing
to the other.

For the docs, i'll stick w/ info-gnu for now since that is more
well-known, and is in fact intended as the clearing-house for
all GNU software.  Using it promotes cohesion w/in GNU.
