fedora-release has always had a number like this, although prior to
Fedora 13 the numbering was <previous>.9#  as opposed to <next>.0-

What may have changed recently was the release code name got changed
from Rawhide to something else.  This has been changed back, not sure if
abrt reads that value or not.

The question I have for the abrt folks, is there any code that would
lead to a bug being filed for rawhide?  If so, how is that code triggered?
