Also, I would suggest a new mailing list, fedora-testing-announce, be created.  
Some of us do not follow Fedora Testing or Fedora Users lists because there's 
just too much traffic.  I have a hard enough time keeping up with the Fedora 
Developer list in addition to the other lists.  Having such testing package 
availability announcements would make it much easier for me to pick up 
testing packages and try them out.

Thanks to all package maintainers for all the hard work on updating packages.
