There should be a good way to have enforcement. It will take extra
thought. knowing where we are in the release process can let us
check against different repos. Final Freeze is the tricky bit and
perhaps we just push stable updates and cherry pick in fixes.
Hum, good points earlier on.
So thinking this through again...the bit I forgot to mention - the
reason why 'updates' matters - is that on fedup to Branched, updates-
testing is (usually) not used, because fedup takes its repo set from
the release being upgraded from. I don't know if it'd be practical to
change that, or if we should just look at the distro-sync mode as the
'solution'. It'd be good to get Will's thoughts.
