The current system of having to increment version numbers every time we want to upload a file with changes is getting silly.

Example: I posted v1.3 final of my battery widget. Someone points out a glaringly obvious bug which I fix. Now if I want to upload it to this site, I have to raise the version number to at least 1.4pr.

Can you please let it upload files with 1.3.1 style numbers?
OR
Can you please allow us to upload files with the same version info.

The former would be *much* better. I find uploading the file here somewhat offputting if I have to tailor my release numbers around your system not my own.

Surely if you fixed a bug the number should increase, that's what the build numbers are for.

There is still an argument for not being forced to increase the version number, e.g. the developer may have uploaded the wrong file and wants to put up the true 1.3 final but the form forces them to call it 1.31 or something.

CraigStanton is right. You can use 1.31
