A sorting by owner would have made hunting for packagers way more easier
(especially if the number of packages owned is bigger then three or
something like that).

Is adding a ".1" that bad after a warning period which allows the
maintainers to do it in better ways?

- Don't slip FC8T2 for this
- tell packagers to rebuild their packages
- for all packages not rebuild or queued by <insert time> (let's say
Friday morning maybe?) add a ".1" to release and let a script kick the
- create and run a small script that pokes maintainers by mail which
didn't update the license tags yet
- for all packages which failed rebuild or which license tag was still
not updated in three weeks from now find a solution (nijas?)
