I don't know precisely what you mean by "rollback". If you mean "change our mind about uploading foo new upstream version 3, and go back to foo upstream version 2", I would not encourage use of an epoch for that. I would upload foo version "3+really2". This is ugly but fits much better into everything. Ian. -- Ian Jackson <ijack...@chiark.greenend.org.uk> These opinions are my own.
