We discussed this a bit on IRC yesterday but I wanted to bring it up
on the list too.
Now that we have rough consensus that we should try to limit the
volume of "pointless" updates, what is next?
I propose we look at two things right away:
1. Limit the frequency of non-critical updates to once per week in
2. Establish norms or rules that limit the types of changes in stable
releases to ensure the releases remain stable
A concrete example of the kind of thing that I think we should try to avoid:
Two days ago I installed updates for F12 (over a hundred random
updates) then yesterday I noticed a lot more udpates (40ish) that
included an update for vala 0.8.0 with the description "Update to new
major release 0.8.0".
Longer term, I'd like to see a more comprehensive plan similar to
we probably need to work towards that incrementally.
Thoughts? What is the best way to accomplish these two things?
