That's not upstream. That's the (hijacked) fork by Nagios Enterprises
being the domain and trademark owner, but not being the original
Probably you should dig a bit into history, like  or  or 
The original upstream was required to be renamed to
http://www.monitoring-plugins.org which provides the *trusted* upgrade
path for the sources built into debian binary packages. I'd call that
upstream, but ask Jan, he'll know better who to trust.

'nagios-plugins-2,0' should probably get a new package named
'nagios-enterprises-plugins' or 'nagios-core-plugins' as already
suggested in other distribution bug reports.
