OK, what is confusing about it? :-) If it is confusing, how can we make
it not confusing?

The RPM build process takes whatever revision the working copy is at at
the moment and builds the RPM file name with the MAJOR/MINOR/MICRO trio.
So the "official" released versions should (normallyl) have the version and
revision number listed in the CHANGES file. However, at any time a person
should be able to make their own RPMs with the current working copy. So, for
instance, Chris probably generated his own Subversion RPMs which were using the
0.26.0 in the version.h file but the working copy was updated to revision

Clear as mud?

How can we make it better?
