As Michael Schwendt found, there were two update sets that contained a
large number of mono packages.  The packages were grouped in sets so
they would update together due to mutual dependencies.  The problem that
arose is before they were pushed from testing to stable, one package
from within each set were updated.  This caused bodhi to mark the whole
set as obsolete and remove them from the testing repo.

Two things have been done to help with that this time:
1) lmacken has disabled auto-obsoleting in bodhi until he can look into
making it more intelligent.
2) I submitted each of these updates individually.  I'll take care of
pushing them all to stable at the same time.

Most of these rebuilt packages had not been touched since Xavier updated
them originally.  The others had been updated, but the package versions
that they're based on were already in stable.  I hope to push these
packages to stable rather quickly (next week) to reduce the window where
maintainers who aren't paying attention can push updates to staging that
rely on the ppc64 packages in testing.

I've updated both F-11 and rawhide branches to build for ppc64.
