It's only manual because it was chosen to be.  We could either A) go the route 
that Core does now and not sign development packages, or B) introduce a 
signing server that can sign anything that falls out of the build system.  
Core pushes to rawhide were 100% automated, just a cron job.  There is no 
reason why Extras couldn't have been for rawhide too, and once we merge, we 
should make that change so that development as a whole automatically lands 
every night.

You can prevent messages from being posted to cvs commits.

You don't.  Once your package is approved, appropriate people are notified and 
setup the location so that you can do your import and build.  What is so 
difficult about this?
