There's no reason to have the jpp in there for this, though.

Jesse Keating's proposal allows you to do this within the current


where jppversion = the numeric portion of the jpp tag,
dist is the fedora dist tag
and y is any minor release bumping you have to do because the jpp
package needed to be updated with something else.

You then know that recovering the jpp number from the fedora version is:
  6.fc6 => 5jpp

If you don't actually care about interleaving updates between Fedora and
jpackage, you can even have:
  5.fc6 => 5jpp
