fedora-package-announce uses topics for each fedora release, so people
can choose to only get announcements about the release they are using.
Off and on I was working on a regex that would work to add a topic for
the test releases as well, but I haven't got that done yet.
Ah ok good to hear thats an alternative looked into. I do think the
'updates(a)fedoraproject.org' package announces to fedora-test-list is a good
subtopic candidate, unless those are actually going to get moved. Without
getting too complex all those package announcements together might be one big
'on/off' rather than choosing which related test releases to receive on that
