in thread $VERSION in module files

Yes and no. It can also be like having different birthdays for your limbs. It might make sense for a peg leg, but mostly unnecessary.

Depends on how interdependent the modules are.

    Hi,

    If its mostly unnecessary, what would be the point of inheriting a version number? Just ask the head

      ITYM s/inheriting/carrying/
      Yes, if modules are always being maintained together and not independently. However, there's always the possibility of people taking parts (e.g. modules) of one thing to use it elsewhere. Then it's easier if they all do carry their version info.

        a good point inmo
