Please don't use Source-Version - from the dpkg-gencontrol manual:

"The source package version (from the changelog file). This variable is
now deprecated as its meaning is different from its function, please use
the source:Version or binary:Version as appropriate."

The reason that this is depreciated is that it was causing packages to
be inappropriately not binNMUable, which is annoying for the release
