We discussed with Jan Silhan yesterday. It looks like something
createrepo/createrepo_c in F22. So it's not dnf/yum/hawkey/libsolv issue.

Wow. createrepo is also affected.
createrepo_c uses strtol() to accept only numbers as Epoch. Anything
else strol() cannot parse is ignored and defaults to "epoch=0" in the
repo metadata. This means it can break for typos as well as, not just
an undefined macro used as Epoch in a versioned dep.
It couldn't find a comment in the source that would tell whether this
is by design.
