I do not know that we want to approach things in that manner. I would
much rather put automated qa and testing in place post build and pre
release and just ship things known to be not broken. though there
could always be cases that slip through.
I wonder if we could do the same thing we are doing with deltas now.
ie, ship 2 versions of every package (current and previous) and then
over time remove the previous ones only keeping more recent ones.
So, say you have foo-1.0-1.fc23 and a foo-2.0-1.fc23 is pushed. Keep
both for a week, then remove foo-1.0-1.fc23, with the idea being that
if there is some horrible problem with the package people are likely to
notice in a week or two and immediately downgrade, but after a few
weeks the likelyhood is that the new version is ok.
Just a thought.
