Few days ago I started to get very usefull notifications that my
critical package, mingetty-1.08-6.fc13, `has been in 'testing' status
for over 2 weeks, and has yet to be approved.'
I doubt such mails help me as the package maintainer, because according
current Updates policy
I can only wait to some (proven) testers to test my package.
I think better place to send such allerts is proven-testers mailing list
/ alias (does not exist amazingly) or
<test-announce(a)lists.fedoraproject.org> mailing list.
I'd like to request persons reposnsible for forcing and implementing
Update Policy and bodhi notification system to re-eavaluate current
configuration in spot of this concerns and to make package update
process more friendly for all involved people.
Proven testers do get copies of these emails (dozens of them) and its
also summarised in the updates-testing report for all to see.
