OpenLDAP 1.x LIBVERSION is 1:0:0.
OpenLDAP 2.x LIBVERSION will be 2:0:0 when a general beta
is released. (The current beta is "limited").
I intend to set LIBVERSION to 2:0:0 in OPENLDAP_REL_ENG_2
once we've completed API changes for the release.
The HEAD branch is not released nor should never be installed
for general use. The HEAD branch is subject to frequent changes
which are not versioned. It's LIBVERSION is permanently set to
0:0:0 to reflect this.

This is my intent.

I disagree. LIBVERSION of the devel branch should remain 0:0:0.
HEAD is not versioned.
