Linux distros typically use the architecture after the version number:


we are, almost, already using this scheme for src packages, so it will be more consistent and clear (IMHO)

However, for backward compatiblity with the current mechanism, would it make sense to reorder it for Cygwin packages like so:


Nack. IIUC this form would confuse upset/setup/cygcheck to no end.
