Okay, that reads like:
If there is no offical Debian maintainer yet, then use -0.1.
Also there is no harm in that it looks a like a NMU,
it _says_ there is no one in Debian maintaining the package.

(-: start with -0 ( e.g. -0test1, -0sss1 -0.1 )
so that -1 can enter the offical Debian archive. :-)
