I'm not subscribed to the announcements but I think the 
update system has been hit hard this week. The user level 
system tool access was screwed up in last weekends update of 
dbus, policykit and system-config-services packages. 
Fedoraforum was deluged with help requests and error reports 
as well as bugzilla. The fixes became available midweek and 
there are a lot of people updating their systems. I think 
the announcements came out in advance of the actual push to 
the mirrors because of the furor. Things are working now 
except the user space network device control that I use to 
switch between my static profiles.
