Notification of ABI breaking updates

Hi guys!

Some third parties want to provide modules compiled against our stable
release kernels.  To make this process more streamlined, I'm wondering
if some sort of announcement could be made when ABI breaking updates are
afoot (like e.g. when they're uploaded to -proposed or to the security
buildd) or when they actually land (in case of embargoed uploads which
we - obviously - can't announce ahead of time)?

If you have better ideas, please shout.
