Thank you Ole and Sergio for the answers.
We finally have fixed the beta revision to upstream svn 671. I have
updated the git accordingly.
I made a new entry in the changelog, since it has been already released.
Feel free to upload it whenever you want.

Ok I understand better now with the stripping part.

When you say automatically, does it mean without human intervention and
as soon as it's available on the debian repositories? As Sergio
explained it, the packaging may differ between OS, so who will adapt it
to Ubuntu and others?
What is the general time frame of package acceptance by other OS?
