Packages get build and are available via the build system at
http://koji.fedoraproject.org. If the package has been branched for
rawhide, it hits it automatically without any delay. However for release
branches, the package maintainers have to initiate a push to
updates-testing/updates repository manually through Bodhi which is the
updates system. The community can influence when it moves from
updates-testing to updates by providing feedback at
Once a push has been initiated, the Bodhi maintainer or release
engineering team has to manually sign it. A automated signing server is
being developed at
This is one of the many things planned to be deployed before the Fedora
Hope that helps.
