[Pkg-emacsen-addons] Bug#829200: dh-elpa: Could dh-elpa be told to use debian version as elpa version

Package: dh-elpa
Version: 0.0.21
Severity: wishlist

Some elpa package do not have the ";; Version:" (for example magit, and
other package made by the magit developers), but in most situation, the
elpa package version is the upstream part of the debian source

Adding an way to let dh-elpa know this, would be cool. Or maybe just an
option to tell it what elpa version there is (setting
"DH_ELPA_VERSION=$(DEB_VERSION_UPSTREAM)" would do in most case, but
letting more complex stuff possible).

The hack used in magit to let dh-elpa know the version is there, if this
is useful.


Maybe no the simple way to do it.
