Could you tell me, if I am right, please? And whether changing
"6.0pre32" to "6.pre32" could be accepted? And if "6.pre32" < "6.0"?

I personally do not like strings in version numbers and use the
following scheme (so does for example Xfce):

x.y alpha z -> x.(y-1).80.z (eg. 4.6 alpha 3 -> 4.5.80.3)
x.y beta z -> x.(y-1).90.z (eg. 4.6 beta 1 -> 4.5.90.1)
x.y rc/pre z -> x.(y-1).99.z (eg. 4.6 rc 2 -> 4.5.99.2)
x.y final -> x.y (eg. 4.6 final -> 4.6)

This guarantees the order of versions, which is not so obvious when
using strings (eg. problem with python update during openSUSE 11.1 beta
phase, where python-2.6beta2 > python-2.6).
