F-18 F-17: already in queue

F-16 seems unaffected (I cannot reproduce this). Can someone confirm this?

Comment 3 Vít Ondruch 2012-10-16 10:34:08 UTC
I cannot reproduce with F16, so F16 should be OK.

I don't want to edit bodhi requests which were already pushed into testing, because bodhi shows warnings like "Adding or removing builds from this update will move it back to a pending state" (this does not say about only editing comments, however I am not sure if editing comments only is really safe).

OK, np ... so may be this should move into MODIFIED state at least.
