Ah, but according to your examples, it was always a -1 revision except
for those very few examples:
> libauthen-tacacsplus-perl/debian/changelog: IGNORE-VERSION: 0.24

Thanks for digging that up. I remembered there was another source, but
couldn't remember where. I thought it was somewhere in the PET

It is. But the example having a -5 revision still seems wrong to me,
Will change it to a more realistic example with -1 soon.

I'll update it anyways according to your mail. If Ansgar posts more
details we can update it further.
