It doesn't change very often at all. From the changelog: 

* Sun Nov 04 2012 <stahnma fedoraproject org> - 6-8
- Fix URL bz #870686

* Wed May 09 2012 Jens Petersen <petersen redhat com> - 6-7
- add ppc64 to ghc_arches

* Tue Jan 10 2012 Jens Petersen <petersen redhat com> - 6-6
- add /etc/rpm/macros.ghc-srpm from fedora redhat-rpm-macros

* Tue Oct 12 2010 Michael Stahnke <stahnma fedoraproject org> - 6-5
- Fix bug #627611

* Wed Aug 11 2010 Seth Vidal <skvidal at fedoraproject.org> - 6-4
- conflict fedora-release
...

so 2 or 3 times a year due to macros or other adjustments and sometimes
0 times a year (2010).
