Okay.  It seems like the developers reference is out of date.  These
days we prefer the use of +debXuY (or so).  The problem with codenames
is that they sort poorly (case in point being wheezy > jessie).
  Then again, I ought to have commented on that already when acking the
original debdiff.

Nope, just the upload.  It does not seem to have been accepted yet, so I
am leaving the tag on.  Please remove it once you get an accepted mail.
