It's not so much about freeciv packager, but about Debian's general
policy. They will not incorporate new upstream releases, not even
purely bugfix ones, to their released versions. Since they had freeciv
version 2.2.1 at the time when squeeze entered freeze (many months
before release), 2.2.1 will be squeeze's freeciv version when it's
New freeciv releases usually make it relatively quickly to debian
development version repos (latest is 2.2.7-2 at the moment)
