changes are needed, we need keep moving



Folks,

The Fedora Legacy updates aren't progressing. Something needs to start happening. Ideas?

My proposal:

 If one distribution version of a package has one VERIFY vote, all the
 versions will automatically be released after a timeout of XX (where
 I suggest XX is 2 weeks) from the first VERIFY -- except if someone
 identifies issues which require discussion or more work.


This is a tradeoff between quality, timeliness and actually delivering the updates. Because most of the folks worried about quality of the updates are not actually doing much of testing, I don't see why we should be stalling because folks seem to be using updates-testing instead of updates. If something breaks with the update, we'll just fix it afterwards and say "well, you should have tested the update in 2 weeks and reported the problems".


(FWIW, the current "issues" list is: http://www.netcore.fi/pekkas/buglist.html)
