A bug was filed against meshlab because of an FTBFS for Fedora 14.  I 
added a patch to resolve it and submitted an update.  After seven days 
with no feedback, I was able to push it to stable.

For an FTBFS for a new Fedora release, does it really make sense to have 
the seven day delay?  I don't see what the downside would be of allowing 
it to be pushed to stable immediately.  Even if there's something wrong 
with the update, it isn't going to replace a working package.
