Why do we not force updates to Fedora X to always be N-V-R older than
Fedora X+1?  We can use the Release tag to enforce this within a

they've been in the newer Fedora first.

Your suggest would lead to not allowing F10's package versions to /ever/
be newer than what Fedora 11 ships with at GA.


Why not force them to be "N-V" older, then?  Wouldn't that still allow
for security updates?  (I assumed security updates were the
minor-point-number -R packages).

So in essence, the F9 packages are set in stone when F10 is released,
except for minor patches.  No new versions.

Security patches are not uncommonly just patches and therefore just a release update.
