Agree completely.

Another worrying sentiment I heard lately was that it makes sense to
push a new, untested upstream release into updates-testing so that it
actually gets testing because "no-one runs rawhide".

The idea being that if you disable the bodhi-karma-auto-push thing, then
it won't hit updates until all the wrinkles have been ironed out.

To me that's just wrong - if someone enables updates-testing, they
shouldn't be immediately exposed to new upstream release. IMHO, the
process should be:

  a) push to rawhide and let stew

  b) if there's some serious bug fix or important user feature requested
     that can't be trivially backported, then push to updates-testing

  c) push to updates
