Here, "source" means "Debian source", i.e. orig source + diff.
In fact, you upload a new "Debian source" each time you upload a new diff.
We are trying to clarify what happens when you just "recompile" a package.
BTW: After "the version number has to be incremented too (this is, the
source package has to be changed and uploaded again) to make sure
dpkg/dselect recognizes the changed package." I would add:
"You may want to use a point version number x.1 or x.5 and make it to
disappear from the changelog as if it were never existed, as long as it is
not released for stable".
