I most certainly don't want to prevent that.  I was under the impression 
that Rawhide would always have a newer VR, which you are saying that 
needs the dist tag to be ensured.

I've asked the questions about the dist tag in my previous messages.  I 
believe I am not the only one with some questions about it, so the 
clarifications will be useful for others as well.
