[Fedora-packaging] Compat packages



Is there any policy at all on compat packages?  I can't find anything
except this oblique reference to "openssl" vs "openssl096b":

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/NamingGuidelines#Multiple_packages_with_the_same_base_name

There are a number of compat-* packages in Fedora.

We would like to add one for celt (an audio codec), since the
bitstream changes incompatibly in each release, and interoperability
depends on an application always using the same specific version.

(This is in relation to this bug:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=485245
and the celt package in both Rawhide and RHEL 5)

Rich.
