Ok here is the draft:

Title: MySQL 5.5 update

Hi people, MySQL 5.5 (5.5.8) is on [extra] . This time we disabled
Archive, Blackhole and Federated engine support.

After doing -Syu please do:

/etc/rc.d/mysqld restart && mysql_upgrade

Please feel free to add or remove words, or rephrase the announce.

Have fun
