Anaconda doesn't support this, and even if it did, network isn't always
available to people when doing the upgrade.

I meant how would a maintainer choose to use rawhide-testing as opposed
to pure rawhide.  Would they have to specifically craft a make build
command with a TARGET= ?

My point was when do we force the use of bodhi.  I would think if we
forced the use of bodhi for every single package build ever we'd create
a riot of angry maintainers.

I agree with you that having both trac and bodhi is non-optional.  We
just didn't have the time/manpower to develop bodhi to a point where it
could be used to drive freeze break requests.
