I believe the main thing you need to know is that the brackets are
a nonstandard spelling for quoted identifiers. That is
[MajorReleaseNumber] converts to "MajorReleaseNumber".
(You might be better off translating to MajorReleaseNumber without the
quotes, which will really mean majorreleasenumber. Depends whether you
want to double-quote every use of the name in your applications.)
The IDENTITY business probably equates to SERIAL, and there are some
other nonstandard things here like the CLUSTERED adjective.
