I think -hosted, -debian and whatever should be suffixes. Usually the naming 
scheme is major.minor.tiny, so the code in common is at the beginning. The 
same should apply to the tags:
* 2.2.4-hosted and 2.2.4-debian are both based on 2.2.4.
* Both will be rebased against the mainline 2.2.5, 2.3, whatnot code again and 
it's not the mainline code that get's rebased against the Debian or hosted 

As you can see, -debian and -hosted are  part of the *version*, although not 
of a version *number*.
