So the final version number for the package should be 0.2+dfsg-2 (0.2-1 
already exists in Sid) ?

What is the difference between ".dfsg", "-dfsg" and "+dfsg" suffixes ? With or 
without the "-" character after "dfsg" ?

The only reason I see that could be invoked to drop "*~" files is the archive 
size, I'm not sure it is justifiable for a 50 KB archive...

I'm almost sure it is impossible to reupload the source tarball, I read that 
somewhere in the documentation. And it seems to be logic if several package 
revisions use a diff file based on it.
