Constantly updated versions in tde-packaging to me does not seem like a good 
idea. Not only would it generate a lot of unnecessary changes, but also would 
not guarantee that the version actually corresponds to the current state of 
appropriate git module.

Sense might have if version will be updated at the time of release of the new 
final version => be labeled using git tag. However, this does not solve your 
trouble. What could you help if I gave you my script for generating source 
deb packages...
