Are people complaining?  Are we actually breaking stuff in the process?
Are you upset with the amount of bandwith we're eating or just based on
principal?

We're not RHEL.  If an update is a good one I would rather have it go
out than not.  Also encouraging a re-spin of the CDs/DVDs in a couple of
weeks might be a good idea ala unity.  Don't know how much human
bandwith we have for such a thing, though.
