Version numbers for snap packages

Quick question about version numbering (as in, the `version:` field of
`snapcraft.yaml`). The logical choice here is to use the version of the app
being packaged, but what's the recommended way to handle changes to the snap
package alone that don't change the version of the underlying app?
Is a scheme like x.y.z-n advisable (where n is the revision number of the snap
itself for this version of the app), or are there alternative suggestions?
More generally, what are recommended practices for setting the `version:` field
of snap packages?
Thanks & best wishes,
