Huh? Why do you want beta3 in the debian revision? Isn't the beta3 part
to do with the upstream version?

Are these betas of 7.0? ie, is 7.0 meant to be better than 7.0beta3? You
can use versions like `7.0-release-1' to get around this when the
release happens.

I don't speak for anyone save myself. GPG encrypted mail preferred.
