| What's the policy on posting package update announcements to

| There have been new versions of udev and kernel available on
| updates-released for a couple of days now, and I haven't seen an
| announcement for either one. I'm a little reluctant to install

| Is there someplace else I can find this information?
Most updates are placed first, then the policy is to wait a few days
so all the mirrors can re sync with everything, then lastly post.
Maybe the team needs to review this policy, or come up with a better way.
The main reason for the delay in posting is usually, there is a MAD
rush for everyone to get the updates when the post comes out. If all
the mirrors haven't caught up, you have a lot of people screaming
about not being able to get the updates.
