C-4. Dist tag


OK, here's the good part... (-:

-------------
In cases where the same SRPM and patchlevel is used between two or more
distributions supported by Fedora, a dist tag is appended to the end of
the release tag defined in C-2 and C-3.  The dist tags with the
following examples appear to be only cosmetic, however the a different
E-V-R is needed between distributions to ensure dist upgrading works
fully in all corner cases.

Dist Tag for Normal Packages:
     %{X}.%{disttag}

...


Example:
     foobar-1.2.3-1_0.7.3.i386.rpm

Did you mean %{X}_%{disttag} or %{X}.%{disttag}?? I guess either one works, as long as you're consistent.
