Why was this update marked as security, but not bundled with the package
that actually had the security issue that you were rebuilding for?  When
the entire list of packages is in one email then it makes sense.  Such
as https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2009-1095.html  where all the
packages are listed under one announcement instead of individually.
