Sometimes for (regression tests for instance) it is beneficial to install more than one release at once. The directory structure that the Debian packages install into (/opt/foam/foam-extend-3.0) but the package names do not: the package is known as "foam-extend" version "3.0". So Installation of a package foam-extend-3.1 will be seen as an upgrade and remove that installation
I'd suggest to modify the naming-scheme appropriately for later releases (changing the package name now would confuse people)
