No pattern. Core package developers can do what they want, and some of
them still don't seem to care that .fc3 is "newer than" .FC5 in RPM
In Fedora Extras, the distribution tag in the "Release" version number is
optional. But when used (through a macro in the package spec file), it is
inserted as lower-case .fc5 by the build-system.
