pre-release package version

kernelslacker 是 "Linux kernel hacker, Fedora Developer, etc etc." 他维护 fedora linux kernel 很久了,最近的一个帖子引起了一阵讨论,反映了 fedora core 和 fedora extras 的分歧有多么大。将 fedora core 和 extras 合并,实现统一的 fedora 7,眼看着 test1 release 就要出来了,他们任务艰巨呢:core maintainer 需要先理解 extras 的惯例,包括版本定义,不能依照旧例了

extras 有好多好的经验可以用到 core 中的。这就是 community 的威力。

按照 extras 的做法,kernel 的版本号会变得更长一些,这样与 kernel 相关的 modules 打包的 rpm 文件名就更长了,尤其是 ATrpms 的那种打包,rpm 软件包名称会长得一塌糊涂。不过,A.T. 应该不会抱怨这一点,因为是自动生成的 kmdl rpm spec。不清楚其他类型的打包方式。

A.T. 还有很多其他仓库的开发者在 merge 之后应该会觉得舒服一点。根据上面的那场讨论,貌似过去有关版本号的讨论都是鸡同鸭讲。然而我记不起有哪些,需要 search 一下。
