Yes, and as a result CentOS released ntp-4.2.2p1-9.el5_4.1.src.rpm as 
ntp-4.2.2p1-9.el5.centos.2.1.src.rpm because you couldn't release it 
according to your versioning scheme because in this case it's broken.

But I wrote all this perfectly clearly in my previous mail, and you know 
exactly what happened so I don't really see the point of your question 
other than to avoid addressing the issue?
