On Fedora they solved that by requiring a numeric, and a free part. And
I thought I'd added to fpmake too, But it could be that I missed some

There are three part:
- the version number, ie x.y.z
- The revision number, which is a number just made up to indicate the
order of several revisions. 
- A free part where you can put anything you want (date, revision
number, 'releasecandidate' - anything without a space)

Format is: x.y.z-revnr.anything

If it's a beta-package, without any logical order in between the
versions, the revnr should be 0.
