i have a problem with one of my packages, python-openssl: the previous
version was called 0.7a and the current one is 0.7.
However, in rpm's (and zypp's) view 0.7a > 0.7 and the package will
break distribution upgrade because it won't let itself be "downgraded".

How can i work around this? Is it possible to e.g. specify that the
newer one Obsoletes: %{name} = 0.7a and be done with it?

$ rpmvercmp 0.7a 0.7+final
:0.7+final-0 is newer

cheers
