They have info for "R 2.2.0 patched" and 2.2.1 is just a frozen version of that. I.e., the only problem is that we forgot to change the heading (and that nobody bothered to check for this sort of thing in the 2-week beta period!).

I noticed the issue just after building the release, but decided that it wasn't worth messing with the SVN tags for something as small as this.

"2.2.0 Patched" is changed to "2.2.1 beta" during the beta period. The release script ends with

cd $SRCDIR
echo $REL "Patched" > VERSION
svn commit -m "setup patch version"

so I believe this is a temporary situation and that r-patched will become "2.2.1 Patched" next time around.
