Yup as others have said it's likely best to bump release up one when

My only comment would be to ensure you import the srpm from the mirrors,
not checked out from subversion as the former will contain the full
changelog which we want to preserve.

Also, please use -l "Imported Mandriva package" (or similar wording)
when calling putsrpm to correctly attribute the source.
