now i don't understand, why >=1.0.0 is not satisfied with 1.0.0~dfsg-1

everything works fine, if i build-depend on (>= 1.0.0~dfsg)

am i missing something?

and if gmerlin makes a bugfix release that gets rid of the dfsg
problems, so we will be able to create libgmerlin-dev_1.0.1-1, will
(>=1.0.0~dfsg) be satisfied?

The special char ~ means "just below" in Debian-version-speak.

So it makes good sens that a dependency on >=1.0.0 is not satisfied by
=1.0.0~anything-at-all, and that is "just below" 1.0.0.

Hope that helps.
