thanks for the heads-up!

Unfortunately, the Version 1.6 is less than the current version of the binary
package 1902+ds-1, so we cannot just change it as otherwise users would be
stuck at the 1902 version.

My suggestion is that we keep the wrong version in Debian until the split
actually happens. Once it does, we can also create a new source tarball and use
an epoch to get the versioning right.


cheers, josch
