Re: Why do we need FC version attached to the package name?

Yes, and let me add that the ".fc10" and ".fc11" (the dist-tag) is part

That makes the .fc11 package "newer than" the .fc10 package
in RPM's view, which is particularly important if internally


I *wish* it made a difference. I did an upgrade am an left with a host of fc10 packages because the fc11 ones weren't considered newer.


For example people with updates-testing enabled on fc10 got a non-upgraded yum because the versions were the same (except for fc10/fc11) and it stopped working because python went from 2.5 to 2.6.... So to RPM the fc10/fc11 isn't being compared, at least not that I can see...

it really differs from the .fc10 build (e.g. in terms of compiler
generated code, library versions, dependencies).

It would definitely help if it did though...
