But to pull it back slightly, is there a way to quickly unpush a package? Even though the tree compose takes a while, is keeping a copy of yesterday's updates dir a simpler problem for these sorts of things?

For me (in .au) the package was known to be broken before it hit my local mirror, so if it had been pulled before the rsync I wouldn't have seen anything broken at all....

Without bypassing a lot of the process and making assumptions with
regard to multilib, no, the time it takes to produce repos minus an
update is on par with the time it takes to produce repos with fixed
versions of the package.  That is, 12 hours for the whole boat of
F8->F10 updates and updates-testing.  Quite a bit less if we're just
going to do say f10-updates only, but still /hours/.

No, I mean just restore the tree to the previously run compose (basically, restore from backup/snapshot/etc) Although updates that break like this don't happen very frequently, I wonder how many F10 users just use PK and don't follow fedora lists, so aren't going to get any more updates unless they notice that there haven't been updates for a while and look into it. Was there a post to fedora-announce about this?

(Plus it took 2 days for me - I got PackageKit pushed but couldn't update because gnome-packagekit wasn't pushed, plus the mirror update lag)
