[lxc-users] lxc file push garbling existing file

I just saw that 2.0 was released! Congrats! You guys have quick release
cycles, I don't consider 6 months that long ago!

Q1. Just out of curiosity how does the version displayed using the
 '--version' switch coincide with the releases on the news page? [1]

Also, I find this very interesting... prior to running `apt-get update` I
did an `apt-cache policy lxd` and I saw:

Candidate: 2.0.0~rc15-0~ubuntu14.04.1~ppa1

Then I ran `apt-get update` followed by `apt-cache policy lxd` and I now
see:

Candidate: 2.0.0~rc8-0~ubuntu5~ubuntu14.04.1~ppa1

Q2. rc15 > rc8 no? Why would that be?

P.S. I love this project and I'm by no means a DevOps but I've managed to
build myself a sweet Build/Deploy System and a Server container for my app
all by using LXD on a cheap VPS. I struggled with Docker for a day, then
found this post [2], and never looked back.

Craig.
