Updating packages?



Hi,

After looking at this new bug (dated mid-December) :
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/beta/show_bug.cgi?id=143177

I was wondering what the general consensus about updating packages
currently was. In this particular case, lua being updated to 5.0.0 to
5.0.2, it seems like an important and win-win situation since all packages
that link against lua do so statically, thus the earlier it gets updated to
this bugfix release, the better.

I know Panu is a bit busy and less involved in apt/Fedora/etc. lately, so I
was wondering if this kind of update could take place without him or not,
and if so, who would decide and who would do it.

My personal opinion is that Extras is currently in a Rawhide type of state,
thus this could/should be done, and eventual bugs would get ironed out
later on during a freeze (FC4's for instance), or through package updates
post-release.
I know this differs a lot from the fedora.us "review, review, review, test,
test, test" (and sometimes "give up, abandon" :-() process, but is what has
always been done with Rewhide/Development.
