If they come from the same source package, then you'd have a newer
version of the manual and tutorial sitting on the server anyway, so
users who 'yum update' would get it?

One way to let users who insist on not updating the documentation
would be to make them Requires: csound = N-V without the release
component. Not sure that's recommended though.

PS there are some really old csound bugs in Bugzilla. Not sure some
are still relevant (from 2006). How we used to live before PKGDB
provided easy access to package-specific bugs...
