Thanks for confirming that the re-release was intentional.

Might I recommend for the future that in case a bad tarball is ever
produced for a release, the version number be bumped when redoing the
release? In this case, leaving the bad tarball in place would be
sufficient, as well as announcing that users should not use that version
and upgrade to a later version with the fixed tarball.
