[Bioc-devel] version increments for unchanged packages

Why is it that packages with no changes still get new version numbers at 
every release? For example, my experiment data package GWASdata has not 
changed since the last release, but the version was bumped from 1.4.0 to 
1.6.0. I imagine most users expect that a change in version number 
indicates some change in content.
