Hi Matt,

Thanks for your quick answer!

   Yes.  It relies on the %%version field having a certain format:

   %%version: <version_number> released on <iso-date>

   For instance,

   %%version: apache released on 2001-01-29

Can this be changed? Otherwise it means having to change the date
style in almost all of the packages. Is it a complicated process to
change it so that the version field takes a) any date format, which
would be ideal or b) the 09 May 2001 format, which is what almost all
of the packages are written in.
