Yeah, we push *way* too many updates and too casually. In my own view an
update should fix a clearly identified common crasher or some other
serious problem, but definitely not just because a new version of a
package appeared upstream. i.e. consider Fedora 8 as finished, done,
dusted and only reluctantly update it due to necessity. 

Of course one OOo security/crasher update probably equals nearly
everything else pushed as updates put together ;-) so I probably
shouldn't comment.
