there is no reason to use wrong dist tag even in older release since
those dist tag
exists in the upstream src.rpm. so i'm not sure it's a bug in 5.6, may
be it was a
bug in older version.

there were 2 updates and one of the missing from the updates.

i taken everything from upstream. may be you'd have to check things
before write anything.
