This is a good point, there is a window where this could go wrong:

foo-1.2.3-1 is the latest-pkg in dist-f11-updates

foo-1.2.3-2 is waiting to push into dist-f11-updates from
dist-f11-updates-candidate (or dist-f11-updates-testing).

foo-1.2.3-3 gets built, deltas generate against foo-1.2.3-1 (latest
pushed update)

foo-1.2.3-2 gets pushed into dist-f11-updates.

The deltas that were generated at buildtime are now pretty worthless. We
also can't just delta against anything newer found in the
updates-candidate or updates-testing tag, as there is no guarantee it
will be pushed.
