Mlton package has wrong version number, how to fix this?


I am looking at the mlton package at nixpkgs/pkgs/development/compilers/mlton/default.nix at 0c7078367b479a7f91f233b91ee49b35f05092a7 · NixOS/nixpkgs · GitHub.

It looks like the last update (mlton: 20180207 → 20210107 by toastal · Pull Request #176677 · NixOS/nixpkgs · GitHub) got the version number wrong (20210107, but should be 20210117). See Release MLton 20210107 · MLton/mlton · GitHub that has a similar error in the heading (but not in the URL or links).

I’m really new to nix. What is the best way to fix this issue? I’m guessing that we need to keep the old version number around?
