Description Paul Howarth 2006-06-19 03:41:08 EDT
The latest release of perl-X11-Protocol in the FC-5 branch is "later"
(0.55-4.fc5) than the one in the devel branch (0.55-3.fc6), which means that
people upgrading from FC-5 to FC-6 won't get the FC-6 version.

You need to bump the release number of all "later" branches when you do a new
build for an earlier branch. Using the %{?dist} tag, as is the case in this
package, helps here; you can just use the same spec file and release number in
all branches and build them all whenever you make a change, which results in
clean upgrade paths.

Spec file modified and new build requested.  Will mark this bug as completed
when I have comfirmation a new rpm has successfully been built.

QA_READY has been deprecated in favor of ON_QA. Please use ON_QA in the future.
Moving to ON_QA.
