The Fedora policy is here:

tl;dr is that it's okay, but it's deone through the hack of putting the
version in the package name. This works fine when it's infrequent, but
is a pain otherwise, especially since each new version needs to go
through package review separately, gets its own repo in dist-git, and a
whole bunch of other overhead.

We have "some reasonable way of dealing with different package
versions" on the deliverables from
so possibly we'll have a better answer soon, but that's where we are
