It's an update of the advisory.

Comment 2 Bernd Bartmann 2005-03-09 17:29:14 UTC
Ok, but you released a new set of rpms with a new version number.
Something here is still very wrong with the way updates are handled.
We never had something like this before and it makes it very hard to
keep track of updates. It would be a lot better to have a new advisory
id and to mention that this one obsoletes the old advisory.

Another thing is that we still don't have ONE common format for the
advisories. Every rpm packager does the announcement a little
different and some don't even announce their new packages. Something
has to be done about this. Also for RHEL the update announcements are
GPG signed by a central key. This should also happen for FC's update

Your second point is:

a) already in bugzilla somewhere
b) waiting on infrastructure to handle these things.
