*sigh*. Spelling the point: "it doesn't matter that something's clearly described in a few places if it's not even paid a few words in the very beginning of the announce message." Since it seems like intended for wider audience than those with inherent knowledge of Fedora-related subproject names.
In case you're not sure about this being a point, I can e.g. sort of announce hasher(7) and imply that everyone has already read the manual page to realize how much the projects they contribute to need this software packaged. Here's the link.
PS: the more ranting part was mostly related to F7 release announce which got me wondering if those writing bold stuff ever look around; particularly, there were complete free isolated build systems available ages before Fedora "invented" their own, that is since 2001 at the very least. Don't take it as a personal blame though, it's just a (narrow) corporate mindset. Still Truth Happens (TM). :-)
