Where is this %fedora macro coming from?
Even if %fedora is defined somewhere, what kind of comparison happens there? String compare?


Is it safe to rely on this when %fedora will only be defined on FC4+? And will string compare continue working properly with all possible numbers?


It's part of the disttag set.

Keep in mind that the proposal on this page has not been ratified, and has even been largely rewritten because this macro-based approach is extremely problematic. See the newer proposal on fedora-packaging list.
