Yes, I exactly mean that, here is a fragment from the document:
"When a new release of the source arrives, you import it into the repository
with the same import command that you used to set up the repository in the
first place. The only difference is that you specify a different release tag
this time. "

Also in some examples I found on the Internet vendor tag was not changed.

I do not understand why it is not true any more. Should I also change vendor
tag ?
