To be more concrete - rpmlint expects a version in the same line
where you have date, time, name and email. Example:
That said, it's technically also supposed to be able to be satisfied
by the first line of the changelog text including it, but again, the
way openSUSE does packaging and changelogs makes this completely fail

And now for the funny part - I (and even rpmlint) have to disagree about
"completely fail" ;-) says we have 8197 (source) packages in
Factory x86_64. However, if you filter
for "no-version-in-last-changelog", it will "only" list 2396 packages
(about 30% of all packages).

From what I've read in this discussion, I'd expect that _all_ packages
show this warning, not only 30%.

Did I misunderstand the check and/or overlook something? ;-)

PS: If you want to explain by example - apparmor in factory currently
shows the warning, but in security:apparmor it doesn't. Note that
there's a pending SR with a version update, so security:apparmor
currently has a newer version.
