Re: Fedora and Fedora Legacy package versioning schemes

I think the "fdr" part should be removed all together.  Packages are kept in 
different directory trees for the relative distro.  If some poor user pulls a 
rpm from a FedoraCore/ directory and expects it to work on Mandrake, thats 
his problem, not ours.

I've always disliked the text tags (rhl9, fdr, fr2, etc..) and I feel that 
they are indicitive of 3'rd party rpms.  Fedora.us and Fedora Legacy are less 
3'rd party and thus shouldn't suffer the headache of text tags.
