Hi,

I'm the maintainer of libgtkdatabox-0.2.3.0-0.  Until now there
was no request for an update of the upstream version and I had
personal reasons to stay with an outdated version.  Now I was
asked to package the latest version and the library is probably
not important enough to keep different versions and thus I will
package version 0.5.2.0 that is the latest version avialable from
http://www.eudoxos.de/gtk/gtkdatabox/ . My guess is that there
is an ABI change involved and thus I have to rename the package
to libgtkdatabox-0.5.2.0-X .  My question is: What is the right
choice for 'X' if I skipped several upstream versions inbetween?


If this is your first upload of that version then X=1.
The correct list for these types of questions is
debian-mentors.
