#23 source tarball snapshots are unversioned


The only link provided to the source tarballs is:

Could you please version them and keep the old versions
so that it can be packaged for inclusion in Gentoo Linux.

    Priority 5 is more than enough, please don't raise it.

    The source tarball at
    http://sdcc.sourceforge.net/snapshots/sdcc.src/ is a _daily_
    _snapshot_ from CVS. You can build your own version from
    the contents of the file '.version' inside the archive and the
    date of the archive.

    The source from the last release is available at:

    Moreover you can export anything you like from CVS. And
    there's a realistic chance, that I'll make a release even this
    year :-)

    HTH, Bernhard

    Sorry about the lack of response, but your comment does not
    resolve the issue. I know the files in
    http://sdcc.sourceforge.net/snapshots/sdcc.src/ are daily
    snapshots, I'm simply looking for the filename to contain the
    version/date stamp. eg:

    The simple reason for this is that when subsequent versions
    are released, and users only have the file, it's a lot easier to
    look at the filename and identify what version the source
    tarball is.

    The source tarball now has a date in it's name. It doesn't
    make sense to keep old snapshot archives. We'll keep the
    source of official releases instead.
