[aur-general] How do I show a AUR Rebuild as a newer build?

Good morning All,

I understand that there are 3 version control tags in the PKGBUILD file.

pkgver - The Actual Package version

pkgrel - The Arch modification/release count - for changes to the 
patches, install file's.

epoch - Special version control number.

If I need to rebuild a package due to dependancy rebuilds/changes how do 
I mark the new package as newer?

Do I increase the epoch?

Or is there another way?
