I guess you are not the first one who didn't find a solution for this
issue; these warnings persist since quite some time, despite several
people stumbling over them.
I looked at the two packages and I'm happy to upload them. There's
just one small issue: Maybe you could mention in the changelog not
only "new upstream release" but something like "new stable upstream
release, we're using a new epoch now because of the unstable ones
before, and now we want to track the stable releases ..." (in a
complete sentence and proper English :)) -- otherwise this could be a
bit confusing.
