Well, the process is still in flux; for example, when I look at

Fedora Core 1 Update: <blah>

I see multiple potential issues:

- what if you want to do an update for multiple FC releases?
- how do you tag it if it's security related
- do you want ot put the update ID in the subject?
- how do you avoid this going off the edge of the mailreader? :)

So, will there be a defined subject format? Yes. Will it be the
exact way it is now? Probably not.
