Is this going to be a separate repository? How do we handle the
testing/qa part on urgent basis?
Yeah, the idea is a separate repository which:
a) can be checked more frequently
b) doesn't need to go through the very slow "push" process, which now
takes several hours best case — for shellshock, it took something
like 18 hours, although that was partly due to a series of disasters
c) will be provided through our normal web cache mechanism instead of
mirrored, to reduce delay there
QA would happen as normal through bodhi. Getting that organized and
orchestrated is separate-but-related ticket
In the case of previous high-urgency updates, we had plenty of people
pulling all-nighters to get the packages built and tested, but then
_after_ that, it took a whole day (or more, depending on mirrors) to
actually get the tested fix to users, which was frustrating.
