Imho it should be valid to have a package in F7 updates-testing with a higher nevr than in F8. Afaik targets updates-testing at experienced users who are willing to test packages and should be able to handle situations, where there is no upgrade path to the next stable release. Otherwise it would be very annoying to get an update into the oldest supported Fedora release. E.g. one updates a package foo for devel, F8 and F7: 1) build the package for devel, F8, F7, create update announcements for F8 and F7. 2) Request push to testing for F8 [wait] 3) Request push to stable for F8 [wait] 4) Request push to testing for F7 [wait] 5) Request push to stable for F7 This doubles the work for every maintainer to get an update for one package because one has to login twice as much into bodhi.
