Right, but the only way I've found out to do  it is using the  number I got
from the changelog, if there is no available changelog , the project release
number was my only option. It would be great if you know a better way to get

For example, in RPM package generation, I always use "1" as package release

But the problem comes from the GetDebVersion() routine you added in rev 660,
just removing it or changing its behaviour it works. My question is: do you
mind if changing its behaviour ignoring the "not using the release version
number" check? or should just add a "-0" to the release number when this
option is checked? Maybe it's a stupid question but it's because I don't
understand the reason to avoid using the release version number, specially
wether Debian package needs one.
