220.127.116.11. Preparing packages to address security issues
Be sure to verify the following items:
* Make sure the version number is proper. It must be greater than
the current package, but less than package versions in later
distributions. If in doubt, test it with dpkg --compare-versions.
Be careful not to re-use a version number that you have already
used for a previous upload, or one that conflicts with a binNMU.
The convention is to append +codename1, e.g. 1:2.4.3-4+etch1, of
course increasing 1 for any subsequent uploads.
