Very nice article, only one question/thing that could be added:

How does this effect new packages going through package review?

As an example:

windowlab (new package, added just before merge), was imported into plague
with fe7-merge as a tag, fe7-merge is inherited by f7-final, so I'm
assuming here that they are included.

ocaml-{SDL,camlimages} & freetennis (new packages, can't be built quite
yet but were added to Koji after merge) are all set to have dist-f7.  Will
I when they are built, have to ask releng to add them to f7-final? (It'd
seem a bit weird going freetennis in FC-6, not in F-7 but in F-8 ;))
