This idea was never prominently communicated as the default
situation. Iirc it was said that there are lots of people who want the
update criteria and will test updates. Making package maintainers now
start to beg for their updates to be tested is imho just a big waste of
time. Also there is no dispensable manpower from package maintainers
available, so requiring them to additionally test each other updates
manually and to maintain test machines is not a good idea. The whole
update criteria enforcement only works if there are enough dedicated
testers that provide extra manpower. Or if the testing is all automated.
