these were helpful indeed, thanks a lot, but this happened:

- I kept "UNRELEASED" as distro in debian/changelog
- I didnt create a tag for the release… (also because we have the illegal (for 
git tags) character "~" in our version...)
- then I ran "git clean -Xdf" 
- then I ran "autoreconf -f -i; ./configure; DPKG_DEVEL_MODE=1 make distcheck" 
which created dpkg-1.18.1-11-g1c825.tar.xz - which is not what I expected as 
"" is the version in debian/changelog...

What now? debian/changelog inside dpkg-1.18.1-11-g1c825.tar.xz has the correct 
version, but I assume there's another location I need to change this...

If you want to look yourself, our repo is at 
git.debian.org/git/reproducible/dpkg.git and the branch is 

Thanks again for your support, much appreciated!
