Well yes so do I but increasing to a human and increasing to dpkg are
often different :)

Well the problem here is we don't really know.
Benny, what are you versioning plans for thunar and exo?
Can we assume that you'll release thunar as say 0.3.0 when you're happy
with it for 4.4 or is there any chance you'll release it as 0.2.0?
The question comes from us trying to put thunar/exo in Debian unstable
and Jani putting it in Ubuntu and wanting to allow upgrades from this
latest 0.2.0alpha-r19548 to whatever you end up releasing.
Likewise for exo and 0.3.1.2alpha-r19548 is that to become 0.4.0 or
0.3.1.2 or something else in the final version.
Let us know,
