Sorry for the confusion. The 1.0.31-1 that you see now is actually newer
than anything that was called 1.0.36.

olpc-utils was forked after 1.0.30 (initially without me knowing),
creating a separate branch of development, and the version number was
incremented in this branch (rather than simply adding a new numerical
component or incrementing the -1 part, which would be the more
conventional way to fork).

Then when I merged in the changes made in that branch (plus some tweaks)
into mainline, I just incremented the version from the last official one
(1.0.30 --> 1.0.31) to make the new official release.

In hindsight I should have probably jumped to 1.0.37 but I hadn't noted
well that the fork had bumped the version in this manner. Hopefully the
forking won't happen again anyhow...

In summary, the 1.0.31-1 version in the mock repos is the one to use
(and is correctly included in the latest 10.1.3 builds).
