Hi Hitesh,

This is a chicken and egg problem. If we put a non release 1.8.1 online users will download
 and install it. An update to this package will not trigger an upgrade on the user's side
and it is hard to recognize (one will need to compare signature). It puts them at risk. 

Do you know how other python projects solved this? I will reach out to the libcloud guys and
ask them how they did it (also python).
