[suggest] perl-HTML-Mason

HTML::Mason uses version numbers in the form x.xx, however for some
reason there are versions named "1.3101" and "1.3200" in the repo:

        http://packages.sw.be/perl-HTML-Mason/

For that reason identifying the most current version isn't working
correctly; yum always provides 1.3200 (29-Apr-2006) even if there were 8
newer versions, being 1.45-2 (30-Jul-2010) the most current:

        # yum list perl-HTML-Mason
        Loaded plugins: fastestmirror

         * addons: centos.intergenia.de
         * extras: centos.intergenia.de
        Installed Packages
        perl-HTML-Mason.noarch                 1.3200-1.el5.rf                 installed
        
        # yum upgrade perl-HTML-Mason
        Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
        Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
         * rpmforge: apt.sw.be
         * base: centos.intergenia.de
         * updates: centos.intergenia.de
         * addons: centos.intergenia.de
         * extras: centos.intergenia.de
        Setting up Upgrade Process
        No Packages marked for Update

May this probably be a candidate for an epoch tag in the specfile?

Best regards,
Jonas
