Binary packages’ source headers should point to untagged versions

Upstream bug:


For example, the debathena-rs 10.0.3~ubuntu13.04 binary package should specify Source: debathena-rs (10.0.3), which actually exists, instead of the default debathena-rs (10.0.3~ubuntu13.04), which doesn’t exist as a source package. Apparently geofft wrote a related patch ( DebianBug:681292), although we could also do this by hacking sbuild or dpkg-genchanges or whatever.

My patch got merged into sbuild 0.64.0-1, in Debian unstable.

Getting this running on Debathena involves doing an Ubuntu merge; there are some mildly ugly patches in there, but we need the ugliest (running setup hooks as root). Anders also points out that we'll need the necessary version of dpkg-dev (1.16.5, present in squeeze-backports, wheezy, and quantal) running in our chroots. I'm happy to call this bug fixed if we just fix it in the current Ubuntu and Debian development release.

This would be fixed by upgrading magrathea to trusty.
