Description Peter Bowen 2002-04-08 14:38:03 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, which will cause problems for up2date users when they try to
update to a newer errata version.  With the period it would be,
which, while looking like a binutils version, would allow the upgrade.

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".
