Releasing 2.1.5 or 2.1.6

I'd like to package up the current release but I can't because the 
current tar files have version problems. What is currently on the 
download link is 2.1.4 but builds as 2.1.5. There have been two 
different versions of the 2.1.4 tar file. This means we can never 
release a 2.1.4 RPM because it's versioning is ambiguous. IMHO the 2.1.4 
release should be considered defunct. There is a 2.1.5 trial version on 
the build server that I've lightly tested, perhaps others should as 
well. Can we move the next release forward to an official release so we 
can get a release out to supercede the current version, which to my 
thinking is 2.1.3 (because 2.1.4 is not identifiable).

P.S.: We also need to be careful, if what becomes 2.1.5 is not identical 
to what's in the 2.1.4 tar file we should go to 2.1.6 because we won't 
be able to disambiguate between a 2.1.5 built from a 2.1.4 tar file and 
the actual 2.1.5 built from a 2.1.5 tar file. This means the next 
release should probably be 2.1.6 with 2.14 and 2.1.5 marked as suspect 
in the changelog.
