Perhaps you can understand my confusion, then.  Here's my

There's a singluar issue: the portion of the release field before the
dist tag is not an integer and neither of the two exceptions in the
NamingGuidelines apply.  The proposed exception, for Java packages
from JPackage only, is:

*) Temporarily allow release to take the form Xjpp.Y%{?dist}[.Z]
   until the detailed changes to rpm and yum render the "jpp"

*) Permanently allow release to take the form X.Y%{?dist}[.Z]

Where X, Y, and Z are integers defined in the proposal.

If that's correct, then +1.
