Many 1000 thanks to Fernando. This is the best solution. I forgot that
rpm compares segment-wise and that longer stings are "newer".
I suggest all repos to use Fernando' suggestion, rhfc1, if they
using rhXX for RHL. Please do use the same disttag for creating a
uniform versioning, .e.g.
Replace ".at" with your own repotag, none, if you don't want one, or
".fr", ".dag", ".che", ".ccrma", ".rb",
".kde4rh" (just suggestions).
Note: the repotag (contrary to the disttag) should not be part of the
rpm ordering, which is why it should come last.
I never intended to use the disttag as part of the EVR comparison. But I'm
sure going to adapt DAR to work with the new scheme and use it by default.
It does make more sense to have the repotag at the end of the release.
Is there already a different repotag decided for fedora, fedora extras
en/or fedora legacy ? Or is there no real gain to differentiate ?
Thanks Axel for making this a priority. It should have been decided more
in advance, because taking corrective actions is always a waste of
valuable time. I for one am glad to have delayed building for Fedora Core.
I already use the disttag 'rhel3' in the same manner.
Is there already a standard for the apt/yum -directory structure ? It
would be nice to have a single syntax that repositories could move to.

Future versions would then become:
Could this subject be added to the naming convention proposal, together
with the disttag ?
