Re: Core Packages in Violation of the Fedora Naming Guidelines

Correct. A prerelease version would use the to-be version in the Version
tag, and 0.RELEASE.PRE-RELEASE-TAG; so that the official upstread release
would be the "first" ("-1") release of the package. For example, with my
packaging of Openbox 3.3-rc2, I use the following:

Version: 3.3
Release: 0.8.rc2%{?dist}

That way, when 3.3  final is release, I can update the Release tag to simply:

Release: 1%{?dist}

Take a look at the wiki's Packaging/NamingGuidelines page, especially the
"Pre-Release packages" section, for more information.

Hope that helps.
