Some gentoo kernel source packages have the characters "r1" attached to the end of their release version numbers--e.g., 3.12.52-r1. Other kernel source packages (most) lack those characters.. What do the characters "r1" signify in those kernel source packages that have it?

jamtat,

-r1 -r2 ... indicate that the ebuild has been updated but it still users the same $UPSTREAM source package.
It also indicates that the change is significant enough to warrant a rebuild of the package. Where the -rX is missing, -r0 is implied.

Hi,

taken from the development guide https://devmanual.gentoo.org/ebuild-writing/file-format/:

Quote:
Finally, version may have a Gentoo revision number in the form -r1. The initial Gentoo version should have no revision suffix, the first revision should be -r1, the second -r2 and so on. See Ebuild Revisions. Revision numbers are distinguished from patch releases by revision bumps being changes by Gentoo developers, while patch releases are new releases by upstream (with the exception of snapshots, see below).


Best Regards,
Holger
