Yes, that is also a problem.  But I'd rather we try and solve one
problem at a time.

Why?  We're talking about the org.el that's in the tarball you send us.
It doesn't have to be identical to the org.el in your VCS.

This said, it could also be identical to the one in your VCS without
needing an extra commit: just make sure the version is changed as part
of the last commit (since it's the last commit before a new release,
it's not completely extravagant to expect that you'd often/usually know
this commit will be used for a release and hence needs a change in the
org.el's Version: header).
