Some suggestions:

- An RSS feed for *important* announcements that is picked up by default
by the package updater or similar but can be unsubscribed from if users
- Ability for yum to get an error message from a repository and report it.
- Sticking important stuff on the *front* of the fedora project web site.

There is a different issue about what is said and leaving people in the
dark assuming the worst - a very bad way to create long term trust.
