Yep, the "about" CLI app and "about-gui" will show 10.0.1 once the user
updates to those newer set of packages. The EDGE package set will then
start to show 10.0.2-PRE, until we tag it as 10.0.2. A new 10.0.1 ISO is
also being uploaded which includes the latest packages / fixes.

I've just finished testing a patch that seems to work, so that users can
get the conflict resolution fixes before updating to the newer package set.
