Oh, I didn't realize this would happen, but of course it does. BTW, it 
is not that the name changed, the contents are completely different: The 
new one has the latest, current version of everything that was both in 
the old .sources and .changes. It is not just a matter of file names.

I saw your message last night, and gave this a bit of thought. I'm 
afraid I haven't found a really good solution.

Something I can do for the next version bump (it is too late for 6.2 / 
6.3 already) is to use a marker changeset, and warn the user. Or perhaps 
even do the sources rewrite when installing it, if the user proceeds.

But, for your situation, the only idea that comes to my mind is to ask 
you to copy back CuisV6.sources. Apologies for the inconvenience.
