I'm building RPMs in a continuous integration environment, and I need to distinguish between successive builds, but obviously the spec file does not get modified on each checkin.
The spec file header contains something like
Version: 1.0beta7 Release: 1.1
I'd like to override it so that the the built RPM will have a qualified appended to the version, e.g.
Assuming that the qualifier is already available, as an environment variable, what's the easiest way of appending a qualified to the version?
