Re: My thoughts on repotag

It still fails for branch-specific (i.e. dist-specific) fixes, where the

	foo-1.0.0-2.el5.fdr.1 < foo-1.0.0-2.el5.rf

but foo-1.0.0-2.el5.fdr < foo-1.0.0-2.el5.rf so it wouldnt be installed in the first place if you had those repos configured ...

priorities plugin solves that one

but I agree it isnt a 'nice' solution for end users ...

It could be mandated that repotag always comes last and is preceeded by a (default 0) build id

eg foo-1.0.0-2.el5.1.fdr > foo-1.0.0-2.el5.0.fdr

Surely what really needs to happen for this to work to everyones satisfaction is n-e-v-r-t
