I would like to make a suggestion:

If a release has been available and unknown number of people have
retrieved it, then if you make *any* change, however small, bump the
version number, *every* time!

This is getting too confusing, we were using so called 4.1b1 for
couple of weeks, until it was revealed that the 4.1b1 available on the
server was something else, modified since we retrieved it.

Don't be shy of bumping the version number, it's just couple of
characters anyway!
