No.  The last part is just the package version - ie. number of the build on
that version.  It just has to increase - for gdal-dev it's for example the
svn revision.

qgis + otherwise optional dependencies eg. for plugin (and everything that's to
be included in the standalone).

The pdb and deps should probably not be in the desktop category.  Fixed.
