Okay, so it's not *as* bad as it seems.  Due to a bug in the query that
is used to generate this list, obsolete updates are included as well.
I ran a fixed query for F12, and there are only 20 unapproved critpath
updates, as opposed to 59.


Even though it is not as bad as it appears, it is still obvious that we
lack the testing resources to properly enforce our current critical path
policies for older stable releases.
