Bugzilla? Where do you want people to report bugs? If you had a fixed

I think Bodhi would be a better place. For example we could do something
with negative karma for stable updates, right now it just gets ignored.

But I wouldn't envision marking an update as 'bad' although that's an
interesting concept itself.  I was thinking that there would be a
specified time when all normal updates enter the repository, followed by
a time when only critical bug and security fix updates could be added,
so towards the end of that interval, packages that hadn't been replaced
with 'better' updates would automatically be assumed 'good' and it would
be fairly safe to update machines where you want less risk.  Then a new
cycle of 'new feature' updates could start.

How's that different from updates-testing?

This would be to catch the things that get past updates-testing but can be fixed quickly. You'd probably have the default set to pull all updates (which will keep a big base of users) but once you have a machine running nicely and doing important work you'd have a setting to make it be more conservative there. I don't think it's as nice as repeatable updates, but it would not take much infrastructure change.
