I don't think we're half-hearted, just amateurs...

We need a policy on how to handle this, saying something like "announce it on maintainer-list" etc.

And it should be possible to prepare all packages in CVS and let one
maintainer submit all build jobs.

Further, notifying the extras signers about builds that are expected
to break deps, if not pushed as a complete set, is highly encouraged.
It would not be much work to enhance the pushscript with a bit of code
that excludes build results based on src.rpm names.

Yes, this is exactly what is needed.
