This is actually something I'd like to see addressed procedurally, with
something more like the kernel's staging model.  Bugzilla is a poor
process tool, I'd much prefer to see a package staging tree that can
feed (only) scratch builds to koji or copr, and have the git modules
promoted to pkg git when they're review-clean.

Right.  And I'm happy to NMU things that annoy me (and have started, for
some of the issues I found in the first post), but it's not really my
job, and it's not something we collectively encourage of each other.
