As part of this task we need to decide with the 'broken' or affected
packages which have been built on the PR1.2 SDK and have gotten PR1.2

We can automatically import all rebuilt packages into extras-devel or we
can decide to let developers re-submit their packages after the builder
has been switched to the new setup.
