Description Lukas Slebodnik 2018-07-12 12:19:23 UTC
Description of problem:
NVR(Name version release) of evince if lower than version in rawhide
and therefore it is not possible to easily upgrade to latest version in rawhide.

Fedora packaging guidelines says:

The versioning scheme also ensures that for a package built at the same time for two different Fedora releases, the version in the newer release sorts higher than the version in the older release.


* Rawhide is allowed to lag temporarily

A package MAY temporarily have a lower EVR in Rawhide when compared to a release branch of Fedora ONLY in the case where the package fails to build in Rawhide. This permits important updates to be pushed to existing Fedora releases regardless of the current state of Rawhide. 

The last succesful build of evince in for for fc29 was done 4 months ago.
I would say that previous statement does not apply as an exception/excuse for evince

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
