Thanks ..

For the moment I've used:

  Version: 0.1
  Release: 0.1.r11

Ignore the Version number for now - I can change that to just be '0'
later if necessary.

How about the Release number: Isn't it more correct to use 0.<n>.r<mm>
instead of <n>.r<mm>?  (I mean, in case upstream decides to use 0 or
0.1 as a real version number later on?)

This is the package:

virt-top is 'top' for virtual machines.  Tiny program with many
powerful monitoring features, net stats, disk stats, logging, etc.
