Thanks for the hint. I cannot see that he explained that "on numerous occasions",
but I can see some bug reports about this, for instance http://www.mail-
archive.com/fedora-package-announce at redhat.com/msg26692.html
As long as they keep doing this and *not* change the reporting at the same time 
they will get questions about it.
