f15/f16 updates pushes take a long time. ;( 

There's some things on the horizon that will hopefully make it better: 

* Currently updates mashes are done on the rhel6 rel-eng machines. 
When/if we can do them in a mock chroot, they should use the much
faster Fedora createrepo. 

* Currently 1 fedora push can happen at a time. If we can split that
  out we can push f15 and f16 in parallel and cut way down on time.

If you have a specific update thats critical to push out sooner, ask
rel-eng? (in ticket or #fedora-releng on irc).
