That's exactly the problem - there are neither tags nor proper
versioning. The only hint I've found is in the Debian copyright file :
> hg clone https://bitbucket.org/Coin3D/dime
> The upstream package source tarball was generated by:
> hg archive -r 187 -p dime-0.20111205 ../../dime_0.20111205.orig.tar.bz2
> first Debian packages by A. Maitland Bottoms <bottoms at debian.org> on
> Fri, 11 Jan 2002 14:27:21 -0500.
> first downloaded from ftp://ftp.sim.no/pub/snapshots/
which suggests the tarball originally released by the authors was a
nightly release (incidentally, r187 corresponds to the current hg "tip").
Regarding the pkgver, I think using the ISO 8601 "reversed date" might be
acceptable in this particular case.
I've attached the revised PKGBUILD below - let me know if you have any
