        Hmm? Suppose upstream version is currently 1.07 released, and
 they are  planning on releasing 1.08 in the future. Now they are
 running through 1.08 release candidates, and so we have 1.08 rc1,
 soon to be followed by 1.08 rc2.  The upstream version variables,
 used by them, are all at 1.08 (not 1.08 '~'.

        How do you propose the debian releases of the release
 candidates be numbered?  When upstream releases, upstream releases
 shall have 1.08, 1.08.1 or 1.08-1, and so on.
