thank you to Panu at first. When is a good point to spam via -maintainers?
Once the package got built? Before? Now?

I'd say right now. And also drop a note to fedora-devel-announce.

To ease transition, starting from the next rawhide push, the popt package
that's still built from rpm.spec adds
Provides: popt-devel = %{version}-%{release}
so you can start adding the buildrequires for the packages needing it

Hopefully everybody added the correct dependency. If not, do so otherwise
your package will break at the next rebuild...

A quick grep of full up-to-date cvs tree shows that nobody did. Oh well...

already. Once the new popt package is reviewed and published to
repositories, rpm will be changed to build against that and drop the
internal popt entirely.

It's likely, that tomorrow will be the day, where popt will get rebuilt for
the development branch (once CVS is done). After that, RPM needs to get the
internal popt removed.

Yup, mostly done and will be committing the changes to cvs in a moment to be ready for just make tag + build once the new popt goes in.
