Please let us change the pre and rc release number schema. RPMished
products can not update from 3.0.21rc2 to a 3.0.21 final release as rc
or pre always is bigger while compared.
Therfore I suggest something like this if we go for example from 3.0.20
For pre releases: 22.214.171.124preX
For rc releases: 126.96.36.199rcX
We might even do it much simpler if we use 188.8.131.52preX and 184.108.40.206rcX.
In any case 3.0.21 will be higher from the RPM version-release point of
What's the profit for our users and Samba.org?
a) Users can update easily with rpm -F *.rpm and no longer have to use
the --force or --oldpackage option.
b) We might get more testers as they never will run in trouble while
updating from a final release to pre, to rc, and the final next release.
