Not that I know of. We have something like 1500 package maintainers and
~17,000 packages. Some of them are large, some of them update more
often than others, etc.

Yeah, I'm not sure how to coordinate that. I guess we could ask
maintainers of those large packages to tell us when they are going to
update... or ask them to do their builds and wait a few days before
submitting the update (as then you could just watch for fedmsg on

However, I'll note that the recent texlive updates were security as
well. ;)
