Bug#284642: ITP: dpkg-reversion -- change the version of a DEB file

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : dpkg-reversion
  Version         : 0.1.5
  Upstream Author : martin f. krafft <madduck@debian.org>

  Description     : change the version of a DEB file

I needed a tool to change the version number of DEB files after
repacking them with dpkg-repack. So I wrote one. Very simple, does
not really warrant its own package, but devscripts is also not
really the place for it. It is unlikely to become part of
dpkg-repack, though you never know (see #284086).

Suggestions welcome. Otherwise I will provide a package soon.

According to Goswin, this will also come in handy for the amd64
