The package release number should be 1 and not 0.1 as recommended in the wiki :

Reason for closing:  Not a bug
Additional comments about closing:  0.1 is perfectly valid. In this case 0.1 was chosen because it's a git snapshot. Current version comes with pkgrel=1 and released version.

I have no idea what package you're trying to report a bug for.

Sorry, I suppose I've made a mistake when reporting the bug. It's about grilo-plugins 0.2.14-0.1

There's absolutely nothing invalid about a a pkgrel of 0.1.

Nothing invalid, but still against convention. Some people use it for short term fixes, but this has been months.
