Re: [Libguestfs] [PATCH] list-applications: Add support for pacman



It's not exactly a problem but Debian supports an epoch. The format is
like this:

[epoch:]upstream_version[-debian_revision]

https://www.debian.org/doc/debian-policy/ch-controlfields.html#s-f-Version

Right now if a package has a version like this: 1:1.2.3-1, libguestfs
will translate it as:
epoch=0
version = 1:1.2.3
release=1

The same thing does my patch for pacman. If we are to leave it like
this, then it makes more sense to do the same for pacman, otherwise in
both cases the version field should be translated to:

epoch=1
version = 1.2.3
release=1
