Because what is in master right now *is* 0.9.3.  It's very common to advance the 
version when you release.  This ensure every commit in Git is marked as 0.9.3.

For example, if you go pull the 0.9.2 tag right now and build a couple of revs 
backwards you will get 0.9.1.  That's not true since every commit after 0.9.1 
went into 0.9.2.  

Advancing the version stops that confusion.

It has done that since the first build system:

build/main/ntpd/ntpd --version
ntpd 0.9.3 Mar 25 2016 08:47:59

There needs to be a '.git' dir for it to get a hash, the above was taken from a 
release dist.

Right, OK.
