Hi Chris,

you appear to do something odd when committing packages. 

I assume you save to a local repository for testing, then save again to the public repository, paste in the previous commit comment, and edit the auto-generated version name.

This is not a good idea. 

These still are two different versions (different UUID). Having the same name/number twice is confusing. Having version "Morphic-cmm.441" be the parent of "Morphic-cmm.441" is strange. 

The Right Way to copy a version to a different repository is to, indeed, copy that version to a different repository. Not save it again. That is, select the previous version in your local repository, and hit the "Copy" button, then select the destination repository.

Have fun,
