The repotag is supposed to be a human-readable repository identifier in
the package NEVR.

Its sole purpose is in aiding users in choosing the right bug tracking
system where to report problems with a repository's packages during
a repository mixing scenario.

The side-effects and consequences of extending %release are ignored.  It's
called a trade-off without interest in the alternative solutions like
"Vendor:".
