Well it also has to update this page: http://www.erlang.org/download.html

And publish a news: http://www.erlang.org/news/79

Wikipedia for example uses the news as proof that the current version is 
17.3 and is therefore advising readers that they should download a buggy 
release: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erlang_(programming_language)
