edges - or, with the mask "active" in the layers dialog, do a "Fuzzy
Select" (magic wand) selection of a sharp edged area, drag and drop
white or black as required into the selection to feather its edge..
Heh, skipped a step.  Do Select > Feather Selection before the drag and
drop part.

Or, just use the Free Select tool to draw a sloppy outline around the
part of the mask you want to feather, and with that selection active,
use Gaussian Blur to make the sharp edges included in your selection
