You're right in one way, but what I want to say is that we are working
to manage the unstable distribution, not the svn-distribution :)
We don't have to care about that. And I think we should upload to
experimental quite often if we want people to test, this a better way
than people doing svn checkout.

0.x notation can also be used for NMU :-)

The problem is: we work on -1 on svn right now.
We upload: we switch on -2. -1 has never existed officialy.
We then work on... -3 on svn ?
We increase to -4 and upload ?
Then we increase to -5 and work on svn, and so on.
I think this is disgusting and unuseful.
Let's work on -X *real* version and upload them to experimental in we
want people to test !
