Yeah.  Or at least document that the maintainer is allowed to reduce it;
that's entirely unclear given the current policy and bodhi UI.  As
things stand, there is a clear expectation embodied in the default
behavior that you should be able to get +3 karma.  The fundamental
complaint (at least as I've been making it) is that that's unrealistic
given the actual available testing manpower.  It's not undesirable;
it'd be great if that actually did happen.  But it's just not going to
happen, most of the time for most packages.

(And yeah, if we allow +1 autopush, we should definitely expect -1 is
sufficient to unpush.  Maybe bodhi should restrict the combination of
those two settings, rather than either one alone?)
