Um. You've pushed this to F-11 too, though:
$> koji latest-pkg dist-f12 --quiet libguestfs
libguestfs-1.0.27-2.fc12 dist-f12 rjones
$> koji latest-pkg dist-f11-updates-candidate --quiet libguestfs
libguestfs-1.0.27-1.fc11.1 dist-f11-updates-candidate rjones
The preview repo is for packages we choose not to push to the stable
branch (because we want to avoid regressions) which we would like virt
testers using F-11 to play with.
You could think of it this way - there are different types of users
consuming these packages:
1) Users who want things to stay stable and who aren't necessarily
expecting new features until they update to F-12 - these are
people with just the updates repo enabled
2) Same as (1) but who are willing to help out testing updates for
the whole distro in order to catch things before they hit the
people in category (1) - these people have the updates and
updates-testing repos enabled
3) Mostly the same as (1) or (2), but have a specific interest in
testing new virt features and are willing to deal with virt
regressions - these people enable the updates, updates-testing and
4) People who are interested in helping with helping with F-12
development in general, not just virt - these people run rawhide
Since you're making libguestfs-1.0.27 available to (1) and (2), they'll
naturally be available to (3) too.
i.e. it doesn't need to be in the preview repo, right?
