This is how most software is packaged. Also the rpm documentation suggests
this standard.
Look on and you will see that every piece of software uses the
version scheme
softwareversion = "majorrelease.minorrelease.revision"


With the current scheme proper upgrades via rpm cannot be acheived as rpm
does not recognize that the number beyond the dash is an incrementally
more recent version.
