E debian-revision-should-not-be-zero

All reports of debian-revision-should-not-be-zero for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

The Debian version part (the part after the -) should start with one, not with zero. This is to ensure that a correctly-done Maintainer Upload will always have a higher version number than a Non-Maintainer upload: a NMU could have been prepared which introduces this upstream version with Debian-revision -0.1

Refer to Debian Developer's Reference section 5.11.2 (NMUs and debian/changelog) for details.
