It was an old practice of GNOME abandoned in 2020. Graphviz, Cairo, Pango, Pixman, Glib2 are examples, from ports I maintain(ed). The MacPorts "gnome" livecheck recipe still follows this rule. Never heard of gcc following it. All I remember about gcc's versioning is that prior to version 5, the branch name consisted of the first two numbers in the version number, and as of 5 it is only the first number. Thus the branches are e.g. 4.7, 4.8, 4.9, 5, 6, 7, etc.
