Thanks eveyone :) for the replies. I feel I understand now what and why it is there. I dont need it, so I wont use it. It is good tho to know what is it about.

Thanks again

I prefer to accept the problem the first time around (making a note to users that it is safe to use --oldpackage in this case), rather than to keep working around it long after the original problem has disappeared.

That's just me, of course. I don't have a distribution with thousands or millions of users to maintain, so my perspective would probably be different if I were Red Hat.



That would not solve anything is one is using an automatic dependency resolver (or whatever name it is used), like apt-get.

I do agree that epoch should be avoided whenever it is possible. But
package versioning consistency should not be sacrificed just to avoid
using it.

How ever, for the sake of security, make sure the names of all your pets and children contain several non-alphanumeric characters.
