But I'd say just leave the bug open and mark it fixed in the version
that's in experimental.

Correct me if I am wrong, but to move a package from experimental to
unstable requires a new upload, right?

Thus, it might make sense to use special versions for experimental:
Instead of 1.2.3-1, use 1.2.3-0.exp.1, 1.2.3-0.exp.2, etc. When the
transition is complete, we can then upload the -1 packages (or
whatever the current revision may be. Just make the first part
before the dot of the revision of the experimental version one

Huh? If we establish a standard and you spell it falsely, we just
fix it. No big deal.

To give proper credit to the Ubuntu folks, who have put a lot of
work into this. zope-common was developed by doko for Ubuntu, and
Fabio is currently sponsored by Google to work on Zope *for Ubuntu*.
