Just wanted to report the same thing, glad it's not just me that
thinks 60<64. ;)

AFAIK, -60 wasn't even a test release, or was it (???). BTW FC6 was
the last release to send test update notificatiopn to fedora-test,
this seems to have been discontinued since F7. Not a Good Think IMHO.

I thought we had one-way upgrade paths checks in the compilation
tools. At least if several candidates are available the tools are
supposed to pick the latest, right?

Several things look like having gone south for this to happen. Is it
now possible to track down the path the "older" package went on to
show up at the wrong place, so we can find and squash the bugs?
