The more we overload that n-v-r, the less useful that label is.
silo can't be fixed ?
- Lose the leading 1. It really doesn't serve much purpose. It would be
better to roll to 10000 if you have that many builds before the kernel
it's the cvs ident, so it'll need some shell scripting to sed it
away or something.
(with room for 2.6.22-10000.fc7 if we need it)
Eventually, it'll get that high.
