I am packaging our DNS servers just for latest Debian stable and latest
Ubuntu LTS, so 0.18.3 would be fine as it is the version in Ubuntu

0.18.1 would be even better as it is the version in Debian wheezy and
Ubuntu Precise, but it's not really needed for my purposes as it would
require to backport far more packages to pull gnutls28 in.
