The snapshot/release script, when generating snapshots, expects to find the date of the last snapshot in files such as .snapshot_date-4.0. For the first snapshot after the version number changes, there is no previous 4.1 snapshot, no .snapshot_date-4.1 file, and the diffs should be generated relative to the 4.0 snapshot from before the branch. This is something Gerald has done previously.

Gerald, is this something you would be willing to do again? If not, let me know, and I'll try it.

(And perhaps we could make the snapshot script smarter so that it would do this automatically? If there's no 4.1 snapshot file, pick the 4.0 one as the base?)
