This is good information.

I've not seen this cause an issue yet, but probably only because arch32
don't tend to increment subrel.

I'll need to find another approach here... I can see this causing
spurious errors with packages built against different/incorrect library
versions (i.e. I rebuild 1.0 as 1.01 then arch32 rebuild as 1.1 and it's
not seen as a newer version).

I _really_ don't want to start hacking makepkg to remove/bypass the
"ERROR: pkgrel must be a decimal".

Anyway - this is OT and my own (self-inflicted?) problem.


( and yes, hundredths - but then _"technically"_ all hundredths are also
thousandths :P )
