[Pkg-fonts-devel] Bug#801720: fonts-oldstandard: version string should be 2.2really2.02-$DEBIAN_REVISION

Source: fonts-oldstandard
Version: 2.2really-3
Severity: wishlist


Shouldn't the version of this package have the form:


eg. 2.2really2.02-3 instead of 2.2really-3?

I'm getting the 2.02 bit from the debian/changelog entry for

  * New upstream release (real 2.2 as the former Debian packages has
    2.02). Closes: #628394

If this is not the case then I think it should be clarified.

(The whole "really" version hack--whilst not having a de jure
specification--does seem to have a de facto intepretation of
"foo-but-its-actually-earlier", but fonts-oldstandard violates this).
