There is no policy on that. You may have hard time finding a reviewer
for an existing package, but you can chose whatever way you prefer (ask
on the list, continue in the previous bug, add a new bug...). People can
look at the cvs version now, so things should be simpler in any case.

As far as I know, there are no policies on this in fedora, so in my opinion 
this should be based on your knowledge of the package use and users and on 
your best judgement. I personally don't like soname changing during a
fedora release, but I guess it depends on the maintainer.

There has been some debates on that in the past, but my recalling is
that there was no real agreement.
