Yeah there is a Bodhi ticket about this and I noted that we will need to
make sure we still work with releng's script if we make the change:
Yeah, it sure would be nice if we could just have something run in cron
once a day or so and just update it. Releng has not been good about
running this script often.

This sounds like a policy decision, so perhaps the question could be
posed to FESCo or possibly the packaging committee. It does make some
intuitive sense to me that we would treat certain packages more
stringently than we do others, but I don't have data to say one way or
the other whether the current policies are beneficial. I will say that I
would feel uncomfortable changing the policy without the blessing of a
Yes, this is definitely something for FESCo.
They made the update policy that uses it.
I can take it to them, I just wanted to see if there was a general sense
that it was useful and we should keep it, or it was pointless and we
should drop it. Perhaps I'll post to devel about it to see what the
general feeling is.
