Should I ever restart the sprint count?

We are running two week sprints for an enterprise systems group. At the end of each two week cycle, we release into Production. Right now, we are assigning those issues that are being "formally" released to the version (1.1, 1.2, 1.3) and any configuation changes or research etc doesnt getting tagged wtih a version becuase it's done outside of formal change maintenance windows. Anyway, we are currently on Sprint 11 and I'm not sure whether I should be restarting the Sprint count at some point (perhaps to coincide with a bigger release?). But if I do that, will it become a manual process to title the sprint every cycle? Should I just accept that Sprints may increment forever and not try to tie them to each release? What is the best practice?

Hey Amy.

Personnaly I don't see any gains that you might have resetting the sprint-count. Anyways it is just a name for that sprint that you could use to identify it.
