Very beneficial.

Knowing  the  state of Rawhide (based on changes, and what is known to
be  broken)  seems  like  critical  information  for  someone using or
testing   on  Rawhide.

Unfortunately,   not  all  changes  that  affect  other  packages  are
announced  in the fedora-announce list. Seeing replies to the "rawhide
report" is usually a heads up that someone broke something.

Putting  these and other script-generated reports elsewhere just makes
it harder for folks to keep track on what is happening.
