what's the problem with 4:0.6~?

That you intended to restrict the dependencies to the first upstream 0.6 released package, but you actually loosened to any previous svn checkout of the 0.6 branch.

oh, I see. Indeed. In that case, Fabian is right with 4:0.6-1~

This of course looses against 4:0.6-0ubuntu1, but that's hardly a problem that we need to consider here anyway.

Correct. That -0xyz1 Debian version string is the oldfashioned style.

Newstyle backport string would look like this: -1~xyz1 and work properly with the string proposed by Fabian.

If Ubuntu is still using the old style, you (or someone else reading this and using Ubuntu) might suggest them to change to the new one.

yes, ubuntu is still using it, but not for backports. -0ubuntu1 is used in ubuntu if a package is being uploaded in advance of debian. I therefore will not propose this change.

for backports, ubuntu uses -1~suitenameN as well.

Ah, ok.  Thanks for clarifying.

Agreed, we need not care about such ahead-of-Debian uploads.
