First of all if an individual brings a component into Fedora and does not know how or what's needed to effectively debug and work on the component he's about to expose to the whole Fedora userbase the component ( unless it's being introduced and maintained by some one that does ) should not be allowed to be brought into Fedora.

We are faced with the fact that we need to play catchup with what ca 5000 - 7000 components and to be able to effective in doing so we need to draw the line NOW and start requiring packagers to provides us with that information when the component gets accepted and included in Fedora so we dont have to start chasing the NEW components after we finished with the old ones..

I think asking for some competence/responsibility from packagers is not to much! After all is exposing this to thousand, hundreds of thousand millions of users and he needs to be competent enough to handle the reports that flow in bugzilla against the component he introduced.
