We use semantic versions. The patch number is a commit step indicator relative to the 2.113.0 release tag in our Git repository.

You can find the detection logic for this version at commit 43a81d7. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check debian/filenames.

Visibility: warning

Some packaging files obtain different names when they are copied from source to installation packages. Debhelper sometimes adds *.Debian extensions to NEWS, README and TODO files. That can be confusing.

Debhelper's behavior also depends on the filename.

This source package contains both a file with the proper name and also a file with incorrect name. Please remove the file as indicated.

Please merge all relevant information into the surviving file.
