Ehh, do we really want that apart from security updates or important
bugfixes (which we can and do push within minutes these days already if
I ask because the "monthly" move from testing to the porper repos has a
important side-effect: I slows everything down when compared to the quickly
moving Fedora, which for EL repos IMHO is something good.
Well I would like to have it that it actually has bodhi votes before
it can be moved. We can have a process for the number of votes needed,
but I would rather have something getting a couple of +1's that can be
tracked than a 1 month timeframe and no one looking at it.
