The re-review rule does seem to be oddly worded. If a very stable
package, like FLAC, where the last rebuild took place during F-12,
were to be orphaned, would it automatically need re-reviewing? Or do
we assume what's intended is "unless the last CVS operation was 3
months or more *since the orphaning* ?
