It's only a concern to the RPM users and maintainers.

If it's a CVS snapshot for the next version increment just timestamp the file. So file foo-1.0.tar.gz is a last release, file foo-1.1.tar.gz is to be the next release, then foo-1.1-YYYY.MM.DD.tar.gz is a snapshot release. Candidate releases can be named foo-1.1-RC1.tar.gz, incrementing the RC number for subsequent candidate files, if necessary.

This scheme makes it easy to understand and explain.
