hah! See, that's *exactly* what I was trying to figure out and it
wasn't clear at all, the 'v' right before the version is the key
thanks. I was digging around all the cgit and the git.kernel.org stuff
and it's just not obvious like it is on github.com for releases.
Thanks! :-) (hence, this would be a great tip on the wiki IMHO - some
stuff is just not obvious, and my hack is "wrong" per se)

Off to update the package...
