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.
