Re: EPEL Packages in need of building for EL-6

The new version of my spec file has
    Version: 20100101.4
    Release: 1%{?dist}
The previous version has
    Version: 20080403
    Release: 3%{?dist}

I mistakenly checked in and did a
    make tag
    make build
with the new version and wish to go back to the old version
(I changed EL-5 when I meant to change EL-6).

Using cvs, I could revert my spec file to its previous version. Then change the release to
    Version: 20080403
    Release: 4%{?dist}
then add a comment in the log that release 4 is the same as release 3,
then revert by sources and .cvsignore files, then commit the changes in cvs, then do
    make tag
    make build

1. Would this work ?
2. Is this the best way to revert to a previous release ?

As far as the EPEL-5 distribution is concerned, if you didn't push the
update through bodhi, it's fine don't worry that it's gone into Koji.
I don't know CVS well enough to know how to cleanly revert (I
generally use Subversion or Git)
I suppose you could untag the package in koji, and then just commit a
older version back to cvs. 

Are you needing to update the older version? Or just don't want the
newer one to go out until you fix it up?

I've CCed in the EPEL devel list which almost certainly includes a
number of people more familiar with CVS than myself and can tell you
the two liner to revert back to the cppad-20080403-3_el5 tag.
koji untag-pkg --help

If you expand a bit more on exactly what you built and what you want to
do we can give more detailed info.
