Many 1000 thanks to Fernando. This is the best solution. I forgot that
rpm compares segment-wise and that longer stings are "newer".

I suggest all repos to use Fernando' suggestion, rhfc1, if they are
using rhXX for RHL. Please do use the same disttag for creating a
uniform versioning, .e.g.


Replace ".at" with your own repotag, none, if you don't want one, or
".fr", ".dag", ".che", ".ccrma", ".rb", ".kde4rh" (just suggestions).
Note: the repotag (contrary to the disttag) should not be part of the
rpm ordering, which is why it should come last.

Thank you Fernando, your brain was needed! This ******* thread was
rotting for a month and a half, without anyone (incluing me) using
their brains ...
