Er... your package is already in rawhide.  You don't need to push it as a
bodhi update.  So your use case is totally bogus because the change you
wanted to get into F-12 is already there:

[jwboyer hansolo packages]$ koji latest-pkg dist-f12 pyOpenSSL
Build                                     Tag                   Built by
----------------------------------------  --------------------  ----------------
pyOpenSSL-0.9-1.fc12                      dist-f12              mcepl
[jwboyer hansolo packages]$ koji latest-pkg f12-beta pyOpenSSL
Build                                     Tag                   Built by
----------------------------------------  --------------------  ----------------
pyOpenSSL-0.9-1.fc12                      f12-beta              mcepl

I have no idea what you are asking here.
