1:2.1.2-0~xgo70+1 is less than 1:2.1.2, because 1:2.1.2 is equal to
1:2.1.2-0 in version number order, and 0~x is less than 0.

You can confirm this:

    % dpkg --compare-versions 2-0~x lt 2-0 && echo yes

I would suggest 1:2.1.2-0+xgo70+1 instead.

...2-1~xgo70+1 would be appropriate if you were backporting Debian's
release ...2-1, which is not what you're doing here.
