    1710In OpenERP v5.0.0 the versioning for the pre-release candidates is made by adding a suffix to the "version" string. Eg: 5.0.0_rc3. This type of versioning conflicts with RPM ordering and updating (generated using 'bdist_rpm' target to setup.py). The final RPM release package, 5.0.0, will not update an RPM package identified as 5.0.0_rc3. How Fedora has been dealing with this is to put the pre-release candidate designation into a 'release' string in their spec files.
