I'll try again

yeah, that's what I meant, sorry, so my question was if we could rename
the "v0.0extended" version of cyclone as "v0.1alpha56.extended".

Cause I would then include "v0.1alpha55.extended" as well.

Yeah, my concern is 'resurrecting old patches from extended', and my
reasoning is that 'v0.1alpha55' was the version that was carried for the
most part and v0.1alpha56 only came at the very last version and got
deleted. There's a problem in this v0.1alpha56 version, it broke all
spectral processing when trying to fix a bug in [cartopol~]/[poltocar~].
This ruined all of my spectral processing examples and is the reason why my
old tutorial that ran on extended used forever the 0.42-5 version.

Well... I believe 'v0.1alpha55' better represents the 'extended'
period/version and I would like to include that too and would also like to
prevent confusion.

So, what do you think?
