That I don't understand ... how does the release cycle depend on where the
debian data is?
What my question aims at: I already have a "make-release" script; if there'd
be something like "change version number in debian/..." (and/or something
else), it would be no more work - and the debian package could be easier kept

Of course I'm interested in getting my package used!
Versioning your /etc, /home or even your whole installation?
Try fsvs (fsvs.tigris.org)!
