as well as bring the unacceptable attitude of some maintainers
to a broader audience - "I simply don't have F18 anymore"??

users which are contribute with testing are not monkeys every
random maintainer can feed his completly untested junk-updates
because he is too lazy to do his homework, google for KVM and
at least test if the result in installable and starts

if someone is unable to verify what he is doing he has to keep
his fingers from it - period
