For those who haven't seen this report before, it shows all packages
where the ordering of versions is incorrect.  The version of a package
in rawhide/FC7 should always sort as "newer" than a version in FC6,
FC6 should be newer than FC5, etc.  Otherwise upgrades can break.

This report was previously sent to fedora-extras-list but that missed
the Core developers so it's now being sent to -maintainers.

Obviously there's not much to do about old problems between, say, FC3
and FC4 but it would be good to fix up any FC5 > FC6 and FC6 >
rawhide/FC7 issues.
