I also encounter some very bad user experience
- A user ask for a new branch / version of a package
- I do the job and push it to updates-testing
- After a few weeks, no feedback

Really frustrated... :(

So, I could have left it in testing forever, but I prefer to push it to
stable (no bad karma), mainly because I don't want to manage a too long
list of packages waiting in testing...

Karma is really a great tool, but not enough used...


P.S. an example
