[fedora-virt] ANNOUNCE: Rawhide virt repo for F11 users

	The idea[1] was discussed here before, so I'll keep this short.

	We've set up a repository for people running Fedora 11 who would like
to test the rawhide/F12 virt packages. To use it, do e.g.

  $> cat > /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-virt-preview.repo << EOF
  name=Virtualization Rawhide for Fedora 11
  $> yum update

	At the moment, it contains the F-12 versions of libvirt and qemu, but
as F-12 development continues, it will contain more. I'll send periodic
mails to the list detailing the latest updates.

	Also, this is very much a work-in-progress. The TODO list includes:

 - get createrepo installed on fedorapeople.org

 - include debuginfo packages in the repo (need more quota)

 - find a better location than markmc.fedorapeople.org

 - enable package builders to upload directly to the repo

 - automatically do preview build/upload for devel/ builds

 - allow building against preview packages; e.g. for language bindings

	Comments most welcome. Help with the TODO list is even more welcome :-)
