Defining some official package naming standards
Sat Aug 12 22:13:00 GMT 2006
The recent thread about remake suggests it would be a good idea to
define some actual official package naming rules: exactly what things
are considered valid for the name, version, and release fields in a package.
A package NVR identifier is name-version-release - three fields
separated by '-' characters.
The release field MUST NOT contain a '-' character.
The version field MUST begin with a digit. Well-behaved parsers should
allow it to contain '-' characters, but package creators should try to
avoid this because it can lead to NVRs that look confusing.
The name field may contain '-' characters, EXCEPT that it MUST NOT
contain a '-' character immediately followed by a digit.
