Tips for Fedora Package Maintainers when issuing updates.
2) EVR Version Problems
Currently F7 uses Bodhi (the Fedora Updates System) while FE-6 uses the
legacy Extras buildsystem. This can sometimes create EVR promotion
problems between the distributions. Example:
2) foo-1.2.4-1.fc7 is pushed to F7 updates-testing
foo-1.2.4-1.fc6 is built for FE-6
3) FC6 version of foo is "newer" than foo in F7, because the FC6 package
went directly into the repository while the F7 package is only in testing.
That's only half of the story.
The EVR problems check-script considers F7 Test Updates and still finds
way too many broken upgrade paths. I think there are packagers who don't
know about bodhi yet.
