Don't do that. 2.01 is a version number for a debian native package,
that is a package that is only useful on debian. From the name, I guess
that xtrlock is useful on other systems too. Instead, you should package
xtrlock in a distribution-independant .tar.gz file with a version of 2.1
or 2.01 and ideally distribute it using the way that xtrlock was
distributed (sf.net or something). Then you create a debian package from
this orig.tar.gz file exactly the same way as if it was not created by
