I think that is a separate issue. I pull a lot of stuff from koji and would
sometimes (when there isn't already an open bug) be able to provide a comment
similar to what I could do in bohdi. For some stuff, by the time it hits
testing I've already moved on and don't bother going back bohdi to rate
package versions I have already updated away from. (Typically I pull graphics,
kernel, some selinux and bug related packages from koji when I see them
show up.)
