For those who care about Debian derivatives:

A derivative may be deployed as an overlay rather than a full archive.
Modifications from the derivative live together with originals from
Debian, but modifications must have a higher version.

Full archives use this approach to increase the version:
1-1 → 1-1foo1

This does not work with overlays because of binNMUs:
1-1+b1 > 1-1foo1
1-1+b1 > 1-1foo1+b1

A binNMU may be unnecessary in the derivative. Also, these versions are

Thus, overlays should use this approach:
1-1 → 1-1.0foo1

However, regular uploads to stable and oldstable distributions may use
the same signalization ("+") as binNMUs, so:
1-1+deb1u1 < 1-1.0foo1

Therefore, please use a higher version for these uploads, such as:
1-1 → 1-1.0+deb1u1

the "project" pseudo-package is intended for "Problems related to
project administration".  Discussion version schemes seems to not fit
that category, so I'll close the report.

If the submitter wasn't banned from Debian lists, I would recommend to
discuss on debian-devel@.
