3.3.2rc3 sorts after 3.3.2, 3.3.2~rc3 sorts before 3.3.2 but that
directory has the older rc2 release. If all future releases use the
pre-release suffix for the directory the watch file in the Debian
package can be adapted, otherwise we'll have the change to work with
whatever is use for the most recent release.
