Please add 1.06 to Version per ring code.

Version is taken from the header in case of gamecube discs, and in this case the header version won't be accurate as ACTION REPLAY discs use a foreign header IIRC, this is why header version is omitted here.

In PC discs, version number is gathered from various sources. In PS2, the internal serial number also conflicts with the serial on disc sometimes, but serial on disc is preferred.

So just because the serial number isn't internal doesn't mean it shouldn't be added by redump standards. A version number is denoted in some way, so should be accounted for. A version number is better than version number, whether or not it's internal. It seems very arbitrary to make this choice only for gamecube.

I have to second that these revisions should be considered official.  The games don't have a visible "internal" revision because they're bootlegging the NHL Hitz game in order to boot on GameCube.

These version numbers (and various updates) are present within the internal loader iirc.  There are several loader versions, code updates, and driver updates embedded on the discs for the action replay hardware to separate them.

These discs are rather specialized and unique - and as we add more revisions, it's going to get very difficult for the few people who care about them to find the one they want to look at in the list.  If they hadn't been bootlegging the NHL-Hitz game header, I'm fairly certain that the version number would have been present in the header.

Can you make one example? I don't know of any case like that.

Its not just for gamecube, this is valid for all console systems which have headers with version strings.

We can have a note about version in comments if its not already visible from the ringcode or just for all discs which don't have they own internal version due to shared bootloader header.
