Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 62971
mkspec script should make sane versions
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:41:45 EDT
the mkspec script used by "make rpm" should have a period between SUBLEVEL and
EXTRAVERSION. Currently doing make rpm in a RH kernel creates something similar
to 126.96.36.199-1, which will cause problems for up2date users when they try to
update to a newer errata version. With the period it would be 188.8.131.52.16,
which, while looking like a binutils version, would allow the upgrade.

Adds the period
The current format was based on multivendor discussion in the community. I guess
someone at Red Hat needs to figure out how they should interact with that
consensus that EXTRAVERSION is "-blah".
