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

Hmm... good to learn this!

Thank you very much!

All the best,
