Must be greater than.

However, most packages use the dist tag so:
 Version: 1.0
 Release: 1%{?dist}

Creates different packages on FC5 and FC6:

 foo-1.0-1.fc5
 foo-1.0-1.fc6

The second package's EVR is greater than the first one.

If you did not use the %{?dist} tag, you'd have to manage these releases
manually to keep the FC5 release < FC6.
