   Well, it's your call. But IMHO you are violating the GNU coding

   "You should identify each release with a pair of version

   You made a new *release* with a new license.

This isn't a new release, but a re-release.

   FWIW, other GNU projects releasing for GPLv3 updates have so far
   done the sane thing and bumped the version number.

They had bugfixes, we didn't.
