hypothetical bin-NMU versioning question
I have a hypothetical bin-NMU versioning question (this is asked only
for my curiosity, so don't give it a high priority). Suppose that
package X (version 1.0-1) is bin-NMU'ed on architectures A and B. At a
later time it needs to be bin-NMU'ed on architectures B and C.
Will the bin-NMUs be numbered incrementally independently on each arch,
or grouped by round? That is, will the arch:any binary packages of X on
arch C get version 1.0-1+b1 or 1.0-1+b2? (I'm pretty sure that arch A
will end up with 1.0-1+b1 and arch B with 1.0-1+b2, but correct me if
that's wrong.) And does this numbering depend upon whether the reasons
for the first and second rounds of bin-NMUs are the same or different?
Thanks and best regards,
