...so what you're saying is that F14 did not in fact go out with a
broken mdadm *purely* because of the policy, but in a small part because
of the policy and in a large part because you don't read / filter your
emails carefully enough.
Um, no. It's because of the policy, period.

bodhi - 2010-10-14 22:36:08
Critical path update approved
The final change deadline was 10-18; you had four days to push the
Oh my, 4 whole days you say? Let's see, the initial bodhi ticket was
filed on 2010-08-05, it was initially pushed to testing on 2010-08-10
(so five days just to push), an automated bug telling me mdadm-3.1.4 had
been released upstream was filed on 2010-09-13, this package was
approved for stable on 2010-10-14, and final drop dead push date was
2010-10-18. If the initial push was any indication, it would have
missed the final release by a day even if I pushed it the second it
became approved! But I would have been pushing an outdated package to boot!
I'm sorry, but no, you don't get to say ONE DAMN WORD about me not
getting it pushed in a 4 day window when the ticket itself took 60+ days
to get approved! And that was after I put out a general request for
testing of the update on devel@ in order to try and drum up testing.
If the ticket can be allowed to languish that long, then I don't feel in
the least bit guilty that I didn't drop my other Red Hat
responsibilities on the floor when the ticket was finally approved. By
the time it was approved, I had already moved on. Fortunately, I wasn't
under the same restrictions on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, so it went GA
with a much better, fixed mdadm relative to Fedora.
