Coordination of updates and reading of bodhi comments

Here is another example where maintainers need to coordinate more and
pay attention.

(rpcbind-0.1.7-1.fc9) went into Fedora 9 updates testing on 11-22.  On
the 25th bodhi feedback showed that this requires selinux changes.

(selinux-policy-3.3.1-115.fc9) went into Fedora 9 updates testing on
12-10.  This was the build to fix rpcbind.

On 12-10 rpcbind was submitted for stable.  On the same day, bodhi
feedback requested that this update not go out until the matching
selinux-policy went out to stable.

On 12-11 rpcbind went into stable.

selinux-policy remained in -testing, until 12-15 (today) when it was
obsoleted by a newer policy, which is also going into -testing.

This means our F9 users on a supposedly stable release will have
non-functional rpcbind (and dependent software) until at least sometime
late tomorrow (today's push is still going, won't start another one for
at least another 15 hours.

This could have easily been solved if the maintainers for rpcbind and
selinux-policy worked together to ensure that the updates went to the
same places at the same time.

In the future, please do be aware if your update requires fixes in
something else, that everything goes together in lock step.

mgrepl, can you request the latest -policy go to stable so that F9 users
can get the proper fixes as soon as possible?
