This is an "extended stable" tree, a fork from the last 3.5 stable
update (3.5 isn't maintained anymore by stable upstream). Thus
it seemed better to just follow last released 3.5 stable version, and
append an extraversion to it, which I chose in the end to be u<n>
(u == update). It's unlikely that other 3.5 stable upstream update will
be done, in any case I expect this way to avoid any issue.
