Looking at this specific case, I think it would have been appropriate
for dcbw to go ahead and add karma to this update, with a note that
this is "proxy karma" and linking to your comment #10 on that bug.

I regularly add karma to updates in Bodhi myself, but I've also seen
devs add "proxy karma" for me in order to move things along.
