[Bf-committers] Why was BLENDER_VERSION_CHAR cleared?

When BLENDER_VERSION_CYCLE was changed to beta (r41802),
BLENDER_VERSION_CHAR also was reset to blank. As the result, build
scripts like build_files/package_spec/build_debian.sh recognize the
Blender's version as 2.60, which is less than 2.60a, and the
version-down confuses the package system so that the newer version
becomes not installable.

Please keep BLENDER_VERSION_CHAR until 2.61 release!
