Applied with the following changes. Thank you.

Changed to a full hash.

AFAICT, there is no mention of a version number whatsoever across the
code base. I set the base version to 0 instead.

I trimmed down the description a bit.

Same as above.

I re-ordered inputs alphabetically.

I removed the penultimate sentence, which is not useful in our case.
