RPM packaging and Ganglia plugin for metrics v2 features committed to trunk before in branch-0.20-security.
 There is no rule that declares the new feature landed in trunk needs to materialized into
a release then back port is allowed to happen.  Those are the only two new minor features
that were back ported from trunk to 0.20 security branch.  No one is using branch-0.20-security
as their new trunk.  Hence, the 4 part version number should not apply.

Majority of users are not affected by the utility features introduced in 0.20.204.  Change
Log shows what is in this release.  0.20.204 is incremental improvement of existing 0.20.x
