Kevin, Sounds like the experiences with an update with 50 packages like
a KDE , but most cases are just a leaf package, which a "works for me"
is a good feedback, for me . 
Conclusion bodhi auto-karma are in the correct proportions , and
should /can be adjust for popular packages .

What I'm trying point out, after a general availability of a release,
I'm a beta tester, I disable update-testings repo and after some weeks I
do a: dnf list extras, I see many packages that still in update-testing
and yes I can make dnf distro-sync, and I can downgrade a bunch of
packages but isn't it more logical push that packages to stable ?, that
way all users (beta testers and others) as the same experience
