[Mageia-dev] There are 2 different packages with same version and release in the repository

While treating the update candidate for freetype2 in Mageia 1, I found that 
packages having exactly the same name are present in :

The package is freetype2- 2.4.4-5.1.mga1.tainted.src.rpm

Those 2 packages are different, one from June, the other from August.

I'm trying to guess what happened : 
- there was an update in June (pushed only to tainted)
- the packager forgot to increase subrel and pushed a new update candidate in 

I think that upon submit into tainted/updates_testing, the BS didn't check 
that there wasn't a package with a higher or equal version in tainted/updates. 
Am I right ?
