Unless I have missed something, currently there is no QA done. One
reason is that bodhi pushes already take one day, and adding some QA
would delay even more. Verifying duplicate provides would be, in my
opinio, the first thing to add.

More offline QA could be done, though. Currently I am not even sure that
never checking scripts are sent. There is the FTBFS stuff, however, and
broken dependencies are reported.

Sometime it is better to push directly to stable, when the package is
already broken, when it is a security fix, or for packages with few
users.
