The version contains the string
That versioning may harbor a subtle sorting issue, namely:
is a more recent version than
1.2.1. It will therefore be difficult
to find a nice version string for the next upstream release if it gains another
dotted digit at the end.
It is better to use
+dfsg instead. The plus sign
., so the sorting that is usually desired can take place:
The tag is present in Lintian version
That is the most recent version we know about.
We use semantic versions.
The patch number is a commit step indicator relative to the
release tag in our Git
You can find the detection logic for this version at commit fac7222. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check fields/version/repack/period.
