What the maintainers could have done is not upload a package that breaks
binary compatibility into a distribution that's attempting to stabalise
That's a way too simplistic view - It's simply that other processes
(upstream release cycles, upstream release processes, package
maintainer's time slots, etc.) are not in sync with Fedora's cycles and
that Fedora's wanna-be QA's delay slots are severely adding to the
already existing problems.
Really. Don't do that.
Really, your vision is impractical and non-applicable.
