OK.

I would have preferred 3.99.2-3 - my versioning policy for mentors is:
a new Debian version for every mentors upload. I then use (in the case
of libitpp) -v3.99.2-1 to collapse those changelog entries into one set
for the .changes file.

http://lists.debian.org/debian-mentors/2007/07/msg00255.html

I'll try and organise a page on http://people.debian.org/~codehelp/
later today.

It's OK for this upload, Kumar, what I want to ensure is this line:
dget: using existing libitpp_3.99.2.orig.tar.gz

By using an incremented version, I can dget the .dsc into the same
directory as the previous upload and this makes checking for mistakes
much easier. This time, I could simply remove the previous -2 files and
keep the original -1 files but next time, please use 'dch -i' before the
rebuild if you need to update the package on mentors.

Uploaded.
