dnsmasq: ensure test and rc order as older than final releases
Opkg treats text after a version number as higher than without: ~# opkg compare-versions "2.80rc1" "<<" "2.80"; echo $? 1 ~# opkg compare-versions "2.80rc1" ">>" "2.80"; echo $? 0 This causes opkg not offering final release as upgradable version, and even refusing to update, since it thinks the installed version is higher. This can be mitigated by adding ~ between the version and the text, as ~ will order as less than everything except itself. Since 'r' < 't', to make sure that test will be treated as lower than rc we add a second ~ before the test tag. That way, the ordering becomes 2.80~~test < 2.80~rc < 2.80 which then makes opkg properly treat prerelease versions as lower. Signed-off-by: Jonas Gorski <firstname.lastname@example.org>
