actually, I thought we'd put drbd0.6 into sarge and drbd0.7 into unstable/sid.
but if you want to have both in sid, you'd need two different source packages.
does it really make sense to keep 0.6 in unstable as upstream isn't working on 
it anymore and has already started the 0.8 branch...?
(or am I wrong here?)

in my opinion, the only reason for having 0.6 packages is to make sure that 
existing 0.6 users don't get automatically upgraded to 0.7.
so, what we have to do is: rename the current packages to drbd0.6 and put them 
into sarge...
then we can start uploading the drbd0.7 version to unstable...
