Michael, I must admit that I really don't understand Epochs.

This was my thinking:

If this is a release based on a) new beta source and b) a new fedora
specific build, then I reasoned that the release should be x.fdr.1 with an
Epoch of 0.

I tried that, and rpm rejected the new package as an older release, so I
surmised that the old Epoch (2) was superseding the release version.

Are you saying that 0:0.14.2.90-0.fdr.1 is supposed to supersede
1:0.14.2-2, or should I simply have matched the Epoch with 1?

This is a completely unofficial build, but for those who are sticklers for
details, I will happily renumber the release/Epoch and rebuild.

Keith.
