In this case, the maintainer did the right^W usual thing we do in

1) push the update for testing

2) after two weeks with no feedback in bodhi, request pushing to stable

3) my -1 karma came at this point

4) releng approves and pushes to stable

There were just 2 days between (3) and (4). If the maintainer was
supposed to notice and cancel the push, we're prone to race-conditions
like this one :-)

Perhaps the (web?) UI used by releng could be enhanced to display the
current karma next to each push request? Or maybe Bodhi could be
configured to automatically cancel stable requests when the karma drops
below 0?
