>From the Policy Manual, 7.1 Syntax of relationship fields:
Whitespace may appear at any point in the version specification
subject to the rules in Syntax of control files, Section 5.1,
and must appear where it's necessary to disambiguate; it is not
otherwise significant. For consistency and in case of future
changes to dpkg it is recommended that a single space be used
after a version relationship and before a version number; it is
also conventional to put a single space after each comma, on
either side of each vertical bar, and before each open
In other words, I don't think a space is necessary after the comma, but
it's certainly nice (makes reading easier, if nothing else).
