That looks right to me, if the goal is to sort correctly against a previously-built neon-0.29.3-1.el6.

Comment 4 Joe Orton 2010-07-07 13:28:40 UTC
There seems to be an oddity in rpm vercmp, that it treats "1.el6.1" and "1.el6_1" as equal.

$ rpmdev-vercmp 0 1 1.el6.1 0 1 1.el6_1
These are equal

which seems kind of insane, but maybe that's expected.

This seems to drive Daniel's concern that the usual habit of changing %dist and adding a ".1" after the %dist will not work.

I don't see that this is a big deal. If we need a Z-stream errata for neon we will bump the release to 1%{?dist}.2.  For a Y-stream errata we can bump it to 1.1%?{dist} or whatever.  Everything will work as expected.  I'll push this out since it doesn't seem blocker-worthy.
