Bug#768426: developers-reference: <codenaname><n> version scheme in §5.13.3 (“Direct updates to testing”)

Package: developers-reference
Version: 3.4.14

Rebecca N. Palmer noticed[0] that §5.13.3 (“Direct updates to testing”) still recommends <codename><n> version suffix for t-p-u uploads:

“Version numbers are usually selected by adding the codename of the testing distribution and a running number, like 1.2squeeze1 for the first upload through testing-proposed-updates of package version 1.2.”

This scheme is obsolete, and +debXuY should be used instead (as § and §5.11.2 already do).
