Description of problem:
RPM package mkisofs-1.9-6 contains mkisofs version 1.13,
Which is in my opinion confusing and inconsistent.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -q mkisofs
2. mkisofs --version
3. reading the output

Actual Results:  [w@pluto w]$ rpm -q mkisofs

Expected Results:  [w@pluto w]$ rpm -q mkisofs

Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2002-01-25 08:30:26 UTC
The mkisofs program is part of the cdrecord sources, which is now
the cdrtools package.  The source code package version number is
the version number RPM uses for subpackages.  The binary mkisofs
package is a subpackage of cdrtools, and as such it gets given
the version number of the package that it comes from.

While this may be confusing, it is not a bug, but rather an artifact
of how packages are split up.
