Seems like something is wrong with this version number though:
Snapshots beginning with 6.8.20070909 are release candidates for 6.8.1
In many version numbering schemes, 6.8.20070909 would be a higher
version than 6.8.1.
According to policy:
Stable snapshot releases are named x.y.z.YYYYMMDD. where YYYYMMDD
is the date of the sources from which the snapshot was built, and
x.y.z+1 is the next release to be made on that branch. For
example, 188.8.131.5240225 would be a snapshot of the 6.8 branch
during the development of 6.8.2.
*Main> let version (x,y,z+1) date = concat [ show x, ".", show y, ".", show z, ".", date]
*Main> version (6,8,1) "20070909"
