Why do you want the version numbers to be the same? The only thing that you
and I should care about version numbers is that they are used to identify
two different versions of the file. We should not care about the exact
version number, especially if they are from two different repositories.

Let's step back a moment, and look at your overall objective. You seem to be
copying files from one repository to another. Why? Is this a one-time copy,
or will you be doing this on a regular basis?
