[fedora-virt] ANNOUNCE: Rawhide virt repo for F12 users

As was done for Fedora 11 users, the tradition continues, only the
locations have changed.

We've set up a repository for people running Fedora 12 who would like
to test the rawhide/F13 virt packages. To use it, do e.g.

  $> cat > /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-virt-preview.repo << EOF
  name=Virtualization Rawhide for Fedora 12
  $> yum update

At the moment, it contains the F-13 versions of libvirt and virt-manager, but
as F-13 development continues, it will contain more. I'll send periodic
mails to the list detailing the latest updates.

A couple of improvements have been made this time around.  Namely
packages are build with mock instead of koji so that new packages can be
used a BuildRequires for other new packages.  Also new builds are
triggered by successful koji builds of tracked packages against
dist-rawhide, so the process is a bit more automated.

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

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

 - find a better location than jforbes.fedorapeople.org

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