+1, we just need to find an appropriate "prominent place", otherwise we'll
flood fedora-devel-announce or even this list.

It has also hit a few packages with Qt 4.5 in F9/F10 updates (even though I
did warn about this issue on fedora-devel-announce! So we also need to make
sure that people read those announcements before submitting builds!) and
almost hit at least one new plasmoid with KDE 4.2.3 in F9, F10 and F11
updates (thankfully, the issue of the plasmoid not working in 4.2.2 came up
in #fedora-kde on IRC and the maintainer canceled the push request directly
to stable, and I also warned the maintainer of a second plasmoid which was
headed for testing just to make sure he's aware of what's going on; both
are now headed for testing together with KDE 4.2.3).
