Are there any plans to change the behaviour regarding the release number?
AFAIK, Mandriva uses a macro called %mkrel, which instructs their build server to auto create the release number.
If the packager doesn't want this to be automatic, then he can force the number in one of the two ways:
Release: %mkrel 1 or Release: 1
In the past, (also AFAIK) the spec files for Conectiva (which has merged with Mandrake to form Mandriva) didn't need to have the release tag, since the specs were commited to an SVN server and their build server automatically created the release number based on the SVN revision number. That way the release number would always be a sequential number no matter what the version is (so, for example, you could have 1.0-55 and 1.1-78 two weeks later).
Jus my 2c to help you making the decision... :)
