I'll try to remember to do it for 5.5.x, Remy will opt out doing it, so 
you shouldn't depend on it.
To Remy's defense, its kind of pain in the butt having a version number 
in SVN that get's tagged anyway,
so you might be better off just keeping the version yourself, right now 
you're only releasing plain vanilla ASF stuff,
but in the future you could add stuff to the release, or modify it, and 
hence want to also modify the version number when you build
