This is in preparation to support more distribution releases. When sharing a debian repo, the package versions between distribution releases must be unique otherwise tools like reprepro will complain and clobber existing packages.

Hopefully in the near future you'll be able to specify "buster", "stretch", "xenial", or "bionic", and there will already be a package available on every update. I'm still working on getting all the plumbing working, especially building the kernels from a non Debian or Ubuntu system, so the only kernel I'm still building locally is for sid / unstable.
