I think resending DLA-680-1 would be potentially confusing. Imagine
that you see two different advisories with two different texts but the
same advisory number. I don't think that would be good from a user
I recommend sending DLA-680-2 with a title like "bash version number
correction". Then for the text, I would start with a short paragraph
that explains that the original advisory was published with the wrong
version number, cite the correct version number, state that there are no
other changes aside from this version number correction, and then
include/repeat the original advisory text for the sake of completeness.
