I've seen you didn't listen to Tomáš's or Kalev's advice on not bumping
the ImageMagick's soname in a stable release.

Furthermore, you didn't give any warning to the maintainers of the
dependent packages (except for the message on this list).
In my opinion, being a provenpackager is no excuse for not doing that.
Please, use the packagename-owner at fedoraproject.org addresses to send
out emails to the appropriate package maintainers.

For techne (one of the dependent packages which I maintain) you bumped
the release from 0.2.3-2 to 0.2.3-3, which breaks upgrades to F-17 and
Is there a way to revert the change and make a 0.2.3-2.fc16.1 build?
