It is old news (Sept).

Anyway take a look at this section of CECILL;


The right to make Contributions includes the right to translate,
adapt, arrange, or make any or all modification to the Software, and
the right to reproduce the resulting Software.

The Licensee is authorized to make any or all Contribution to the
Software provided that it explicitly mentions its name as the author
of said Contribution and the date of the development thereof."

It does not say anything about version numbers and such. A weak point.
