7.5. Packages with ".fc6" Tag

There have not been any major changes in the toolchain in Fedora 7. Therefore, some packages in Fedora 7 might retain ".fc6" in the release tag if they have been inherited from the previous release without any changes. Fedora maintainers have not rebuilt these packages for Fedora 7 to avoid making end users download the packages for only a release tag change. This measure ensures that the robustness is not affected by any potential changes evoked by rebuilds. This naming of packages is merely cosmetic, and does not in any way affect the functionality of the software.
