Description Ralf Corsepius 2006-07-29 03:25:43 EDT
Description of problem:
The release tag of the createrepo-0.4.4-0.1 rpm uses a leading "0".

It should be using a release tag starting with "1"

Formally, this violates the packaging naming guidelines:

Technically, this leading '0' disables users, who want to replace the FC5
createrepo with an upstream version from choosing "a guaranteed to be not
conflicting release-tag".

Background: Due to several bugs affecting me, I can avoid replacing the
createrepo-4.4.1-0.1 rpm with packages being build from createrepo's CVS.
Normally, I'd use *-0.4.6-0.<date>, to allow RH to replace this local version
with a nominal future update, which I'd assume to apply *-0.4.6-1*.

The tag you have chosen renders this consideration (which is the background of
the guidelines to require -1) void.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

this appears to no longer be the case in fc6 and f7. I'm going to close this out.
