It's not provenpackager specific stuff, but found in the basic packaging

Just read the page linked above. There is no strict requirement to
apply this release versioning scheme for old branches. If newer branches
would always win RPM Version Comparison because their %version field
is _higher_, you can bump %release in older branches without risk.
