I remember some (Alexander?) already mentioned that he has an asterisk
backport ready.

The problem with your version number is, that it's greater than the
versionnumber of the package in sid.

Package in sid has 1:1.2.1.dfsg-1, so the correct version number for
the backport is 1:1.2.1.dfsg-0bpo1.

If you're a Debian developer, fix the version number and the
distribution (should be sarge-backports), and upload it via ftp to

If you aren't a Debian developer, fix the version number and the
distribution, upload the package somewhere and ping me again.
