Fedora Extras rebuild for FC6



Per the FESCO meeting today and a "go" from Core, the rebuild of Fedora
Extras towards FC6 is scheduled to start on August 28, 2006.

In a nutshell:

* A "needs.rebuild" file will be committed to all active FE devel
packages' devel branch in CVS on August 28.

* Maintainers either 1) bump the EVR of their packages in the devel
branch [0], rebuild them, and remove the needs.rebuild file, or 2)
remove the needs.rebuild file with a commit message describing why the
package will not be rebuilt.  See link below for more info which
packages are generally eligible for 2).

* The timeframe for rebuilds is three weeks starting from Aug 28 -- the
intention is that packages not taken care of before September 18 will be
orphaned and will not ship in the FE6 repo until they're unorphaned.

[0] When bumping the EVR, please make sure that it is greater than the
one of the latest FE5 package so that we'll get sane FE5->FE6 upgrade
paths; see the broken upgrade paths reports on fedora-extras-list.
