${Source-Version} without revision


Is there any variable similar to ${Source-Version} which would allow me to
use version of the upstream sources in control file?

I have packages where program and data are distributed separately and
usually there are no need to change data package, but using:

Depends: foo-data (= ${Source-Version})

leads to the situation when I have to bump version of the -data package.
Would be great to have ${Upstream-Version} for such purposes.

Is there something like that I'm not aware of?

I couldn't find anything like that in `man dpkg-gencontrol`.
