Re: Downgrading OpenSceneGraph in rawhide?

Hi,

Is it possible to downgrade a package or replace a package with an older
version in rawhide without having to bump the epochs?


Background

Short version:

I plan to replace OpenSceneGraph-2.0 with OpenSceneGraph-1.x and to add
a OpenSceneGraph2 package in rawhide (similar to what gtk did during the
gtk-1 -> gtk-2 transition), due to other packages still carrying deps on
OpenSceneGraph-1.x


Couldn't you introduce a package named OpenSceneGraph1-x.y? It would be inconsistent with the packaging naming prevalent in the repository but it can be a way to avoid disrupting the existing packages and introducing epochs.
