It's broken (we've had some fun with that with the KDE grouped updates too, 
we learned to be careful about what we push when), but a maintainer should 
know how to use our tools, which includes being aware of their limitations. 
Double-checking things both before and after filing an update (e.g. checking 
https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/thepackageyoureabouttopushanupdatefor 
before filing the new update request) definitely can't hurt (I always do 
that), and it will help avoiding issues you don't even know about, or at 
least catching them earlier than 2 months after the fact (as happened here).
