It is second time git tag for DMD release refers to commit with VERSION file content which doesn't match the tag. May indicate something is wrong in release procedure.

Hah, and just like last time I notice this right after you :-)

I think part of the problem with the release procedure may be that the build-a-release script actually auto-overwrites the VERSION file content, so the problem is hidden unless one tries to build directly from source the manual way:

Assuming that we want to continue relying on the VERSION information (which makes sense for e.g. users building from tarballs rather than git clones), might it make sense to change the build script to _validate_ the VERSION info, forcing the maintainer to correct it if there is a mismatch?
