I assume 'ss' means 'snapshot'. You should use a version of the form
20010824, and ask upstream to change.
If a 'normal' version number is anticipated soon, and you want to be
able to switch without using an epoch, you can use something like
0.0.20010824 (this seems to be existing practice, anyway).
P.S. your Mail-Followup-To: appears to be broken. Mutt came up with a
message addressed to 'frodo' (in addition to -devel).
