Another annoying issue is updates with no explanations. There is a
"Notes" field in bodhi that many people just ignore for an unknown
reason. Any update with less than a specified number of characters
(~40) in the Notes should also be banned.

I can't see a reason to make exceptions. If people used the testing
repo appropriately, things would actually get tested. I wish there was
a solution without some sort of banning, but apparently, there is not.

This is not quite right. Adding a BR might mean enabling a previously
disabled feature of the software, which DOES need testing.

Any change needs testing. Even one liners.
