Hi

According to https://packages.debian.org/source/buster/xorg-server the
version of x-org supplied with Buster is 2:1.20.3.1  is this correct or
is the actual version number hidden in there somewhere.  I am not sure
how to interpret the number (sorry)

Debian package version numbers are defined (in https://www.debian.org/doc/debian-policy/ch-controlfields.html#s-f-version) as:

[epoch:]upstream_version[-debian_revision]

Therefore, "2:1.20.3.1" corresponds to an upstream version 1.20.3.1.


Gnome is easy 3.x same for the kernel 4.19.x

This is for the presentation I am working on which is now on Salsa (
https://salsa.debian.org/zleap-guest/presentations )

However being able to interpret this information would be useful to me
generally.

Thanks
