Ouch.

GM> How can I downgrade to the previous version?

You have to release a new package that has a higher
epoch:version:release triple than the old package.  So you can either
increase the epoch, or lie about the version.

Hmmm.  It doesn't look like the epoch is included in the CVS tags.  I
wonder how well it will work in practice.

Anyway, to include an epoch, just add "Epoch: 1" to your spec.  But
keep in mind that you'll have to keep it around forever.
