This is me setting the AssemblyInformationalVersionAttribute, I didn't
touch the AssemblyVersionAttribute at all.

See the note at the bottom of

| Although you can specify any text, a warning message appears on

| version number, or if it is in that format but contains wildcards. This
| warning is harmless.

so we could simply suppress the warning.
