The user provided the following additional text:

2.02 came out, and Arch bumped epoch 1->2.

We inherited the 2.02.rc2 pkgver from Arch; this was an error, it should have been 2.02rc2.

Now that 2.02 has properly been released, they needed a way to force the upgrade from 2.02.rc2->2.02, which pacman versioning considers to be a downgrade.  So they bumped epoch.  A permanent fix to a temporary problem... *grumble*.
