I think this process could really use improvement. There are many packages
which failed to build due to the recent RPM and GCC changes and the
extremely recent v4l change. Requiring the fixed builds to all go through
Bodhi is really unhelpful. Why can't we go back to the old (pre-NFR) process
of having F15 be self-populating until Beta (i.e. what used to be Preview)?
As I pointed out to Jesse when NFR was originally implemented, we don't have
to throw out NFR (nor any essential part of it) to implement that at all.
We'd still keep the early branching and Rawhide moving on towards F16. (We'd
also keep the fact that F15 is feature-frozen now, of course; that would
have been the case even pre-NFR.) We'd just have to let dist-f15 work like
Rawhide (for Koji/rel-eng purposes) until the Beta Freeze, and start using
Bodhi only then.
