That's a good idea. But why weekly and not when they enter the repo
(e.g. daily)?

Well, important is always subjective. Better just list them all. Maybe
in a consize format, e.g. a daily mail like the rawhide report (not
one mail per package like fedora core reports).

Should the buildsystem do that? E.g. whenever the repo is freshened
create that list?
