Ah, I have been thinking about that just after sending the mail. I think
we can add a build number in the versions file, in addition to the
version number. And when either the version or build number changes, we
run the tests again.

So the versions file with build number would be something like this:
    type: release
    build_commit: ada623c4cbc145521980e6bce08611cff7e81cad
    buildnum: 1
    type: beta
    build_commit: ada623c4cbc145521980e6bce08611cff7e81cad
    buildnum: 3

Indeed. So the build script should check whether someone already
uploaded a matching version and upload only the sha256sums in that case.

Ok, I can make it send an email to tor-qa with the results.
