Please fix these reports to have a date in the subject.
Does the message indicate they are now available in the repo ? Perhaps they should have the standard headers like existing packages - ie when who and the initial version.

I also noticed some oddities in other entries:
! missing blank line:

aircrack-ng-0.9-1.fc7
---------------------
* Mon May 14 2007 Till Maas <opensource till name> - 0.9-1
- update to latest version
anaconda-11.2.0.59-1
--------------------

! missing comment for perl-File-Next:

* Mon May 14 2007 Ralf Corsépius <rc040203 freenet de> - 0.33-1
- Upstream update.

perl-File-Next-0.40-1.fc7

and:

* Tue May 08 2007 Remi Collet <Fedora FamilleCollet com> 1.0.8-1

etc.
=====
I would suggest that build system should not be allowed to make an updated package available without at least mention of the person who instigated it, and their comment {better - minimum 5 words}.

Reasoning - even in summary form - now that many people can do lots, it is more important that changes are notarized / traced.

ps: I see lots of package updates from non-redhat staff :-) This merge thing is really in action !!!
