Your packager duties include aiding in ensuring testing of your packages
takes place. It is not true that there is nothing you can do. You can
contact proven testers and ask them to test your package, you can
contact people who use your package (I would hope you know some!) and
ask them to become proven testers to ensure that your updates are pushed
in timely fashion in future.

QA is not 'someone else's problem', it's a collaborative effort. Fedora
is a community-based volunteer-driven project; neither Red Hat nor The
Fedora Project has a thousand minimum-wage Fedora test slaves in a room
somewhere ready to do all the testing we could ever desire.
