We discussed this and agree that there should be a way to get a specific
version from the repositories.
The only problem is that we can't fix it retroactively because the
repository management software doesn't support it.

Going forward and starting with the upcoming Mono 4.2 release, we'll
snapshot each new release using it's 4-part version, i.e. you'll be able to
use the following snapshot repos:

wheezy/snapshots/X.XX.X.XX  <-- specific 4-part version
wheezy/snapshots/X.XX.X <-- symlink to latest 4-part version
wheezy/snapshots/X.XX <-- symlink to latest 4-part version

We're still discussing whether we should also snapshot the ~0xamarinX
pushes. Those are used to correct packaging issues that don't warrant a
separate release. We're currently leaning towards not snapshotting those.

It'd be great to get your feedback on this, does the above work for your
use case?
