There should have been a reason in the reject mail, and even if not, the
footer asks to reply if you don't understand. Anyway, the reason was
that currently 1.5.dfsg+220.127.116.11-2 is in unstable, and 1.5.dfsg+18.104.22.168-1
is smaller, so cannot be anything else than rejected. You can of course
re-upload to NEW with a higher version number.
Anyway, the .orig.tar.gz is now restored and should be on your local
mirror around nowish.
