Attention, packagers! Invalid rebuilds



Lots of warnings in today's push of packages in the needsign queue.

There are still packagers who rebuild their packages _without_ increasing
the "Release" value. This does not give the expected results. We don't
overwrite existing packages in the repository with such rebuilds. We
don't do it for any Fedora Extras tree by default.

Do increase the "Release" value in the spec file, add a %changelog comment
that it is just "a rebuild", commit the updated files, run "make tag" and
only then run "make build". Make sure you don't remove the needs.rebuild
file without a successful rebuild of your package(s).
