Haiku needs to define how package release repositories work. At the moment the ever-increasing hrev tag defines a functional package ecosystem. (This package was built on hrev32452 and should work on any os release newer than hrev32451) These hrev numbers are modified for releases via alpha1~hrev32452. (more details needed)

The package manager needs to sort the release prefix properly

On the versionning scheme for Haiku: more details in #10289.

So basically the release will have a version of R1~alpha5.0 or R1~beta1.0 (no hrev info). Anything built for a specific nightly will be R1~alpha5.0~hrev44444, which is greater than the release version number in our versionning scheme.

The package manager needs no change. All packages for a release need to be built while running that release, or an older nightly (which would have a version lile R1~alpha4_pm~hrev33333) so it is installable on alpha5.
