Summary: release numbers of packages do not increase even on
relevant changes
Product: openSUSE 10.2
Version: Alpha 4 plus
Platform: All
OS/Version: SuSE Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Basesystem
AssignedTo: aj@xxxxxxxxxx
ReportedBy: rschiele@xxxxxxxxx
QAContact: qa@xxxxxxx


Currently release numbers of packages do not increase even on relevant changes.
For instance the current upgrade of the db package to 4.4 release did not
increase the number on packages that link to libdb. This results in
non-upgradabbility of the system. YaST even destroys the whole system by
deciding to uninstall vital parts of the base system (e.g. perl) in that
situation.

Thus please upgrade the release number on each change that does result in ABI
changes. If you have not implemented detecting these changes then do it on
_every_ rebuild.

The fact that most system destructive bugs when using factory are due to such
inconsistencies instead of real package bugs does not cast a positive light on
your quality assurance efforts.
