For the record, I did test (on one release) the latest bunch of updates I 
pushed before pushing them out to stable. But sometimes a fix is very urgent 
and trivial so I'll just take anyone's word that it works (or if the change is 
really really trivial, e.g. a fixed Requires which can be verified to be 
satisfied just by looking at the Rawhide report and noticing there's no broken 
dependency, not even that) and issue it directly to stable (and I think that's 
a good thing and the new process which will make this a PITA is going to 
degrade our overall package quality by delaying urgent fixes). And for stuff 
like the KDE updates, I know many people, including other KDE SIG members, 
test them, so I usually don't spend my time testing those updates as well, the 
testing feedback we get is largely sufficient.
