Sorry, i meant "now". To rephrase, i think upstream thinks 1.3 is stable.

That's awesome!

Yeah, that's how I'll do the upgrade probably. I just thought of how
other packages (e.g. Apache or request-tracker) handled this and they
made sure you could do a smooth upgrade by allowing both (say)
request-tracker3.8 and request-tracker4 to be installed side by side to
perform the upgrade safely.

I do not see this as an absolute requirement though.

I wasn't aware you had a 1.3 package ready. It makes sense to me to
upload 1.3 directly.

Sorry for the confusion.

Le monochrome, c'est pour ceux qui s'intéressent (encore) au contenu.
Usenet dans ces conditions, c'est comme le web avec lynx, on prend
trop conscience du vide, c'est déprimant.
