This is a wierd effect due to different time zones.

The date in the filename indicates the date when the sources were checked out,
Melbourne time.  This is the one you should use to determine which is the
"latest" one.

The date on the file indicates the date when the build finished and the
file was copied to the ftp server.  Apparently either the ftp server
or your ftp client is converting this date from Melbourne time to UTC
or to your local time, hence the value here can appear to precede the
date in the file name.

The sources are available in mercury-compiler-*,
e.g. mercury-compiler-0.10.2-beta-2001-07-29.tar.gz.

If you want sources which exactly match a given binary snapshot,
then you'll need to use CVS.
