I think I could pin my apps to specific versions in the RPM spec but don't have much experience with packaging and I haven't tried it yet.

I don't know if you have the time, but I would be very interested in having 64-bit versions as well.
Could you give me a heads-up when you've uploaded the 21.2.1 release?

It's common for packages on OpenRepos to ask this.  OpenRepos is for more experienced users and they should be able to do this. (Yes, this is a bit of a cop-out.)

That would be very cool, and I see Daniel has answered to this already.
