If you do this, please add a tilde "~": denemo-0.9.6~rc1.tar.gz,
because in debian tools (and others) "a tilde sorts before anything,
even the end of a part".

"For example, 1.0~beta1~svn1245 sorts earlier than 1.0~beta1, which
 sorts earlier than 1.0."

$ dpkg --compare-versions 0.9.6 gt 0.9.6rc1 && echo true || echo false

$ dpkg --compare-versions 0.9.6 gt 0.9.6~rc1 && echo true || echo false

This way I could package a release candidate and upload it to Debian,
to try to get a wider audience to test it.
