I post message there over week ago. I thought it was sufficient. 
Provenpackager rights off course do not excuse that or other mistakes. 
On the contrary it only take me possibility make such tasks without make 
troubles for others. If I must also write to each maintainer separately 
- I promise do it next time. Sorry.

I do not known unfortunately.
Furthermore I've submitted update to testing ta moment read that 
May be it possible just update in Fedora 17 too?

Additionally have worth I try read carefully all docs about 
provenpackager and such updates and have not found how deal with such 
versions. I had look in my packages and few others and found it was 
updated many times in that way. In packages were was present subrelease 
after %{?dist} - I increase it.
Should or must in next time I add it in any package even it does not 
have it??

I apologize for the inconvenience. Can I help something now?
If you or other will insist I may unpush that update and try patch IM 
for all issues off course... But I really do not want doing it now.
