... or the kernel? At least for the kernel parts of ALSA, syncing an
ALSA version to kernel version would automatically tell us which patches
will make it into a new release. Plus, it would also be easier to
compare feature sets (something like "ALSA 1.0.26 gives us what we have
in kernel 3.6").

Would that be feasible or am I missing something?
