Okay, I screwed up the tarball for the first stable release, due to not

This release can be downloaded at:

Is there any particular reason that the project is using the same naming
convention for stable releases? It appears to be a minor revision update
from the standard release cycle. From an outsiders prospective, I don't
know how anyone would think that is not a standard update from
0.9.11, as there is no distinction in either the name from the distributed
file, or documentation (unless I missed it denoted specifically on

Would there be any objection to using a distribution file name
libvirt-stable- ?

To me, it is confusing, but that is just my opinion.


Don't change the tarball name like that. That would just plain suck
and be different than how 99% of projects out there do things.

Ok, but having the same download path is just as confusing, as it looks like
an update to 0.9.11, when it is a different release.
