I would think that bumping the epoch is probably the right thing to do.

So you are not the Fedora nikto packager? It is the packagers job to
update the package. He might appreciate your help, but you should
contact him and not file a review request. This looks like an
unfortunate and probably unintended attempt at hijacking the package.

(As Bruno said:

It seems like a wise decision upstream to change their versioning
scheme, but perhaps they should be suggested to bump it to something
less ambiguous - for example 2.3.1.
