RONR which edition?

If the Bylaws state:




Robert's Rules of Order, Newly Revised, shall prevail at all meetings, when not in 

conflict with existing state and federal law or these Bylaws.  


A member is citing from the 11th edition but the Parliamentarian is only accepting the 10th edition references.


What is the protocol?

The 11th edition "is intended automatically to become the parliamentary authority in organizations whose bylaws prescribe...  "Robert's Rules of Order Newly Revised..  without specifying a particular edition (p. viii.)."


The 11th edition is the proper one.


But will that be enough to persuade the ludicrously obstinate (and maybe penurious, or just plain miserly) parliamentarian? After all, the 10th edition says the same thing. :)
