If I understand correctly the behavior changed in maven-debian-helper 2.2 and all Maven packages that build-depend on a package which specifies --has-package-version will automatically use a version constraint from now on? Please note that --has-package-version is used by default when new packages are created with mh_make and I believe most Maven packages that I have touched use this flag in some way. > The solution is to either: > - add the ".RELEASE" suffix to the package version > - remove the suffix from the version in the pom > - remove the --has-package-version flag I can remove the --has-package-version again and work around the version constraint but I believe the issue is more complex. In my opinion there shouldn't be an automatic version constraint unless explicitly specified by the maintainer. I fear a lot more packages are affected and version constraints will be too strict and cause more of these issues. Do we really need to remove --has-package-version if we don't want a versioned constraint or can't we just treat --has-package-version and automatic version constraints differently in m-d-h to get back a more fine-grained control?
