You use that field already, too.



But then you ignore the fact that lots of people want the disttag to give them a recognisable identifier in the filename and package info (EVR).



"the fact" ? "lots of people" ?


i would say:


1)
a user will package "foo" and not
"foo-dag",  "foo-fdr"  or  "foo-fr"
with all the dependencies on this hacked release-tag.
eg.
"bar-dag",  "bar-fdr",  "bar-fr"

2)
and a user will update "foo" to a new release without problems with several repositories.
