It's a pain to find relevant postings in 1400 (or such) postings.
So, a list does not exist?

Why "rhfc1" and not "vfc1"? Why "rh" == "Red Hat" in the disttag
when the distribution does not have the name "Red Hat Fedora Core"
but just "Fedora Core"?

How close should that be? To realize that you decide on a case by case
basis whether to add the "0." prefix or not?

That prefix should be used consistently, because you cannot assume whether
a package will appear in Fedora Core (Extras, Alternatives, Development,
Testing, whatsoever), e.g.  apt-0.5.5cnc7-36.rh9.1.at.src.rpm

Btw, Cc to so many lists is a bad idea, since rpm-list freshrpms net is
not open for non-subscribers.
