Epoch is the stuff used on Debian versions to mark a new versioning
scheme, the general form is “epoch:version-revision”, so if you have
1.0-1 and then on the next release the versioning changes to let's say
0.10.0, but still that should be considered a later version, then one
would use 1:0.10.0. So while I guess you could translate epoch to dato
it seems there could be some more appropriate translation for that which
does not really denote literal time. Wouldn't “epoko” just do it?
