well but when side tag is used then no compatibility package is needed
Rawhide will not be broken in that case.
I think that there are two ways how to handled that issue:
- create side tag and after finishing merge changes into the rawhide
- create a compatibility package in rawhide and when migration will be
done that compatibility package will be dropped.
From my point of view side tag is better to handlling.
