I think I used too much hyperbole in my original rant on this subject. 
We certainly don't want rawhide packages to sit anywhere for a period of 
time.  We just want some system that assures us that the package got 
some kind of testing before it was released to rawhide.  And not every 
package--just the critical core packages (what those are would be 
another long thread).

For 99% of the packages, I am sure they have been tested by the 
developer/maintainer.  It is the package that just doesn't work that 
causes the angst, when a simple install or update and run would have 
shown a problem.

Anyway, the problem as it relates to rawhide is really too small to 
spend any more energy on.
