wu-ftpd-2.6.1-16.src.rpm builds using wu-ftpd-2.7.0 (alpha?) source code

Description of problem:
There appears to be at the very least a version mismatch in the
wu-ftpd-2.6.1-16 packages, included in Red Hat 7.1. The source tarball is
wu-ftpd-2.7.0-20010328.tar.bz2, which is not even available at the wu-ftpd
public FTP sites, suggesting this is still an early alpha release.
Probably not a good idea to include that in a production release (although
fine for rawhide and beta releases), but in any case, shouldn't the package
version number reflect that of the source code it uses?
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -qilvp
2. Examine output, looking for version number on tarball.
Actual Results: Source tarball is wu-ftpd-2.7.0-20010328.tar.bz2.
Expected Results: Source should be 2.6.1, as package version suggests.
This is the current official version.
Yes, the tarball is taken from the CVS stable branch. It has quite a number of
bugfixes and unstable new features don't go to the stable branch.
