------- Comment #8 from ro@xxxxxxxxxx 2006-10-10 16:11 MST -------
well, that check happens "offline", meaning hours or even days after the
package was built, definitely too late to bump the release number.
Basically you need the release number before even starting to build the
package, but at least you need it before the rpm is really written to disk,
and at that time you have no real comparision to the previous rpm.

The strategy that rel-numbers should be bumped if a package reaches the
customer still holds, so the approach from comment #5 sounds workable,
but it's a bit too late, since when everything is really spooled to the
public server, the distribution might be already in the middle of the next
rebuild; I'll have to trigger a little earlier: exactly when the rebuild is
completed ...
