[slurm-users] Slurm tarball numbering vs RPM numbering for first release tarballs.

This actually just tripped me up on a Cray, but I belive the observation
is still worthy of discussion.
If I take the
tarball from the SchedMD download site, and then do a direct RPM
build on it, so
rpmbuild -ta slurm-19.05.0.tar.bz2
what I end up generating are the following RPMs
where I note the extra "-1" that's crept in to the RPM names.
Going back through the tarball history (yes, I've kept a lot
of then) suggests that, were there to be a "-2" release of
slurm 19.05.0, then the tarball name would be
and that it would then match the name of the generated RPMs.
Is there anything, other than a tacit admission that there may
sometimes need to be a "-2" or greater revision of any given
release, preventing SchedMD from distributng the first tarball
in a release with the "-1" revision in the tarball name ?
