Good suggestions. Historically, Setuptools has not followed semver. I intend for Setuptools to start to follow semver (at least in spirit) starting with 0.7.

Thanks for the links. I expected something more massive, but as people said there appeared to be a plenty of releases over this period, so MERGE.txt covers my needs,
Major number increments mean that some features are added according to semver.org http://semver.org and even without it it is convenient to read about features separately from fixes.
