make update

I updated Fedora's Makefile.common to support an 'update' target, which has now been comitted. This gives developers the ability to push an update into bodhi with a single command.

Once your package has been built, jump into your branch and do the following:

[lmacken@tomservo F-8]$ make update
This will drop you into a template where you can specify various fields. Any bug numbers mentioned in the most recent RPM ChangeLog will be pre-populated as well.
# [ nethack-3.4.3-15.fc8 ]
# type=[S|B|E] (S=security, B=bugfix, E=enhancement) (required)
# request=[T|S] (T=testing, S=stable) (default: testing)
# bug=123,456
# all other text will be considered to be part of the update notes

Make and save your changes, and then your update will be submitted to bodhi.
