How about foo-1-3.fc3 and foo-1-4.fc4
How do I issue an errata for fc3?

foo-1-4.fc3 (which is still smaller than foo-1.4.fc4)

But this breaks foo >= 1-4


I don't follow. How exactly does it break?


Your foo-1-4.fc3 won't contain the change made in 1-4.fc4, that
is required for FC4, but must not be present in FC3.

Right.


If a package requires foo >= 1-4, it's safe to assume that it requires
that change, and 1-4.fc3 won't have it, so things will break.

OK. This is part of the minor pain that must be endured to start using dist_tags. No one said it would be 100% seamless. I consider these side-effects to be insignificant next to the major advantages that dist_tags bring to the table.


In this case, multiple erratas must be released:

The package that *had* contained:
Requires: foo >= 1-4
now should be:
Requires: foo > 1-4

And release foo-1-4.fc3 and foo-1-4.fc4
