If the fix is more invasive, then using updates-testing is fine ofcourse, but for important, simple (obviously correct) fixes, I would like to be able to skip updates-testing.

Even "obviously correct" fixes have caused major regressions. Your packages would reach updates after sitting in updates-testing for a small amount of time. What's wrong with it?


That small amount of time. There should be a balance between the chance for regressions and the time spend in updates-testing. If the chance for regressions is close to 0, the time spend in updates-testing should be 0.

The chance for regressions is pretty much never zero.

No, but often close to it (assuming our buildsys does reproducable builds, which AFAIK it does).

I regularry get crashers reported where upon debugging, the cause is obvious and so is the fix -> close to 0 chance of regression.

End users would very much be willing to wait a small amount of time if gives testers a better chance to check for issues and improve the quality of updates. What is the big rush anyway?

For non obscure crasher / application not starting bugs I would rather get the fix out asap then wait a few days and watch dozens of duplicate bugs pop up.

Hans
