Unfortunately, this also only works once the package is actually pushed to 
updates-testing. That's of course because yum still pulls it from updates-
testing (yum cannot pull directly from Koji as the required metadata is not 
there), and also because the advisory number is only handed out at that time 
(so you cannot actually spell out the command before that point in time).
