Sorry for the delay of my answer, I have been occupied
things last weeks.
I quite like the digit-only version numbering, but "ipe" has a
_really_ weird release cycle. Every time a new major version is
started, there is nothing but pre-versions for a couple of years. When
a stable "X.0" version is released, the major version is increased
immediately. This means, that most of pre-versions de-facto stable
Therefore naming 6.0pre30 as 184.108.40.206 would cause a lot of confusion,
because the package's major version would be lower than the program's
one in 99% of the time.
I would like to ask, whether the following workaround could be accepted:
The version "6.0pre30" would be encoded as:
As soon as "ipe 6.0" is released, these tags are changed to:
I think that such an update should work well according to SUSE package
conventions. Moreover a similar system is used in Fedora packages.
No, you can't use Release number for this, because Release is
automatically generated by OBS and Release tag in package is replaced
by that OBS tag...
If I changed the package in the described fashion,
would it be accepted?
