Here is the problem, if the build is not deemed "good" by rel-eng to be in the release after the release candidate where does it go? Basically the idea is that once the RC hits, "development" of the release is done, but we want to enable developers to prepare updates to the pending release to be able to release them out to updates-testing shortly after the release. Having the builds from the branch be tagged as if the release were already out helps in this regard, as they're already in the right place to be prepared as an update within Bodhi, and if a rel-eng request is made to bring it into the release if rel-eng agrees it's a simple tag action to "move it", and if we say no, no tagging action is necessary it's all set up to be prepared as an update. Does that clarify why we're tagging them as potential updates at this point? -- Jesse Keating Fedora -- All my bits are free, are yours?
