E debian-changelog-version-requires-debian-revision

All reports of debian-changelog-version-requires-debian-revision for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

This package is not native and requires a Debian revision as part of the version recorded in debian/changelog.

This error is sometimes also triggered in packages with a 1.0 source format and a stray *.orig.tar.gz file in the parent directory, which causes dpkg-source to believe that the package is non-native. If that is incorrect, please convert the package to the 3.0 (native) format. Alternatively, you can rename or remove the *.orig.tar.gz file.

If you do not know what a native package is, you are probably working on a non-native one.

Refer to Debian Policy Manual section 5.6.12 (Version) for details.
