When looking at the latest updates published by a package maintainer I noticed that there was a recent update to a package despite the minor version not incrementing:
The docs says that everything before
~precise+2 is the "upstream_version".
+donate.sury.org is clearly the host of the upstream maintainer,
7.0.6 is the software release, but what is the
-9 meant to signify?
I would assume it would be the 9th build of that version, but I'm unsure why you would have multiple builds of the same version.
What is it, and is it potentially important to ensure that production servers are kept up to date with it?
