I believe this wiki page should have been included in the announce mail:

For those that don't particularly follow devel day-to-day, the blurb
about the XZ change is pretty uninformative.  I've tried to dig back a
bit and it seems the XZ change is to pick up XZ 5.0.  It seems the
rebuild was done to fix Delta RPM generation?  From a package
standpoint, will that mean that F14 is incapable of reading F15 RPMs?
Does that impact mock?

I'd be happy to flesh out the change a bit more in detail if someone
could point me at what is really changing in terms of XZ compression
and what it means going forward.  Better late than never.
