As we are starting a new cycle, The text version of plymouth needs to be
updated. There was some discussion and it was noted that the graphics
version of plymouth has no version displayed. We are wondering if we
should just drop the versioning on the text version as well or not. The
text version shows up if the ISO is being tested on/in a vbox and may be
helpful to remind the tester what version they are working on... if that
person does a lot of testing of different versions :)

For those who don't know, plymouth is what displays the ubuntustudio
symbol with the wheel effect around it in the graphics version and the
words Ubuntu Studio XX.XX with the moving dots under in the text version.

Quite aside from that however, I would suggest that the backdrop for
lightdm should have the version number somewhere... And I would suggest
using numbers rather than the "code name". Some of the code names good,
some are not... (precise was good, but raring?). Even if the session
backdrop had the version added to a corner that would be fine.

Anyway, vote here. when we get tired of waiting for votes we will run with
