I would be nice to have a "tomorrow's rawhide will be the last
opportunity to get things tagged into the beta" email. If there was
one I missed it and the amount of extra work it has cost me due to
having to spin up repos and answer people's direct emails of "this is
broken" would have been nice, the time it has taken me is time I don't
exactly have at the moment.
