Those numbers are meaningless, ignore revision numbers.  Just diff the code,
you'll see there are no changes to Magritte.  I'll try and be more careful

That's a file based version control system, it's not going to work for
Smalltalk code.  Learn how Monticello works, it's is the main version
control system for Squeak, and I don't see that changing any time soon.
