Well, I don't have to look very far: among my own packages I find
It cannot possibly be a good idea to use something other than the
upstream version number in Version --- the ensuing confusion would
trump whatever rationale there might be for this guideline.
While I hope that there will soon be a new libjpeg upstream release
that uses a more typical m.n type of number, it's folly to imagine that
Fedora can dictate upstream version numbering practices.
No one said dictate. You ask to get it fixed, if possible. You cajole,
It's not like fedora is the only distro impacted by this.
