I'm happy this applies only to released versions of Fedora[1].  But I
think this should also exclude 'newpackage' updates explicitly (ie.
where a new package is added to a released version of Fedora).

Ah, yes.  I will add a explicit sentence as follows:

* These guidelines are not applicable to updates in rawhide or for completely new packages being introduced into the repository.

Thanks.
