Debian packaging: please use proper package version to allow upgrades to the final release

Reported by: Nicolas Dandrimont <[email protected]…> Owned by: desai
Priority: major Milestone: Bcfg2 1.0.0 Release
Component: bcfg2-client Version: 1.0
Keywords: Cc:



Right now, in the Debian packaging, the version number is 1.0.0rc1-1'. This is a problem as when the final version will be released, the version number should be 1.0.0-something'. However, in dpkg, 1.0.0' < 1.0.0rc1'.

To allievate the problem, the version number right now should be `1.0.0~rc1'. This will allow seamless upgrades to further RCs and to the final version.

Attached patch fixes the issue, unfortunately, by breaking upgrade for current installations of the rc1. Maybe another solution could be found.
