really what is so hard about commiting to master and building.

then doing "git checkout f18&& git merge master&& git push && fedpkg
build&& fedpkg update"

its really not much effort to keep them in sync at all if thats what
you choose. you dont delay things getting into rawhide and tested by
those running rawhide, its win all round.

Version: GnuPG v2.0.18 (GNU/Linux)
