I have noted this but I think having two versions of a low popcon
package does not really help but might rather add confusion.  For
the moment I decided to drop the ".hbrem" to not keep ftpmaster
busy with this stuff.  IMHO there are two reasonable options:

  1. Wait until a stable release is issued (and call it whatever
     upstream is calling it or keep the old name for simplicity).
  2. Upload the beta and keep the name as long as upstream has
     done a final decision about it.

Am I missing an option which causes not more work than it is worth
(especially for somebody else than us = ftpmaster) for this issue?

Kind regards
