As mentioned in the other thread, this is about to
change, most probably by moving the version information
back to the *.mk files and generating the version column
in the package list (table) via JavaScript.

Nevertheless, pinning the version number in the settings.mk
is an interesting idea. Of course, this works only if the
build script, download URLs etc. are still working with
the old version. But then, overriding the version number
should be a simple as adding the following line to settings.mk:

sdl_VERSION := 1.2.0

Note, however, that this might have unexpected effects
on "make update", so don't try to upgrade a package that
your are currently pinning. On the other hand, it shouldn't
be too hard to adjust "make update" to check/replace the
settings.mk entry, too, in case anyone has a real need for
