I don't understand this, why do the *buntu repos seem to use version
numbers that do not reflect the actual version number (as they usually
do for all other packages)? The version is given as
"0.23.0+fixes24158-0ubuntu2" but in debian-land anything that is a
preview release should have a name starting with something like
"0.23.0~rc1". Otherwise you can't really tell what is *really* 0.23.0
and the sort order goes weird. Seems like they kinda rely on the
revision number (24158) rather than the release number to signify
what's really going on? Or am I misunderstanding?
