Re: Equivalent of --append-to-version for deb-pkg ?

 testing  solutions for a  kernel bug  I have recompiled several times the same version of the kernel. I like the command deb-pkg but I didn't find a easy way to change the name of each compiled version instead of erasing the previous one.
Ideally I am searching for the exact equivalent of append-to-version with make-kpkg. But anything which allows me to distinguish each compiled version would be fine.
Any tips ?
PS : probably out there but didn't find it sorry....
I'm not a kernel exprert, but I use *--revision* command line option to distinguish and create different kernels with different configurations or for testing purposes :
$ fakeroot make-kpkg --initrd --revision=x.x kernel_image <kernel_headers>
here *x.x" is the actual kernel revision (your own private revision) you are going to create.
Does this solve your problem?
