In addition to Bill's reply, please note that "rebuilds without bumping
release" don't find their way into the repository. The push script _does
not_ overwrite existing packages in the repository, even if the build
report may say otherwise. Rebuilding without increasing either one in
%epoch:%version-%release is an invalid operation.
