Ticket #339 (reopened enhancement)
Allow end users to choose favorite packages and recieve notifications

This is a feature proposal that could improve end user participation on package testing in the Fedora Update System.
Please implement an option for the user to mark some packages as "favorite" and receive notifications about new versions of these packages coming to testing or updates repository (by email or by custom RSS feed).
Currently the end user can subscribe only to the general RSS feed of a distribution/repository. That may not be appealing for some users (especially common users not able to filter the feed). Let's say I'm a big fan of pidgin and I want to test every new version available, even help to test it in the testing repository. Then I would appreciate the option to subscribe *only* to the pidgin package and receive mail/RSS notification every time a new pidgin package appears.
I believe this feature would have some good social consequences and could attract more users/testers.
