I think you are misreading what I wrote as far as the Debian packages.
Any files in the 5.1.x series will have "5.1" in the name. There will
never be "5.1.1" in a file name. The rationale for "5.1" vs. "51" is
not based on the existence of minor versions. I tried to make this
clear in the README, but maybe the text needs more work.
