overpass turbo versions

Hi. Thanks for updating the overpass turbo wiki page. I have a question about the versions numbers you added (for example currently it shows Version: 12.93 in the info box). Where do these version numbers come from? Cheers, Martin -- Tyr (talk) 08:40, 3 September 2018 (UTC)

@Tyr: You're the brilliant developer of overpass turbo, aren't you? I'm so glad you asked. 12.93 may seem random, but in this case it's not :). I guess I should've discussed it first, but since there was no official version number, I halved the digits of the 1,293 commits into 12.93 for convenience and update references. What do you think of my idea? Considering you maintain the project, your opinion is pretty much official. Thanks :)! — EzekielT (talk) 19:32, 3 September 2018 (UTC)
Hi, sorry, for the late answer.
Ok, I see. But is it really necessary to have version numbers for the project? Because, if it really was, the I could "officially" version the code, so you don't have to invent other numbers. The "number" of commits can be a bit misleading number btw, since not every commit on the github repository is actually code that is in the "released" master branch. What do you think?
