When was this agreed upon?
While I personally support this scheme, I was under the impression
that there were more people against enforcing rpm upgrades for
minimally changes (e.g. fedora-legacy should only provide security
related errata). Especially because RH itself did not issue errata for
rpm despite the known problems.
In fact, Warren, I believe we were the only two supporting rpm
upgrades, so unless we are the only left subscribers of fedora-legacy,
it is not yet an agreement of the whole list. ;)
Make it 3 then... I support Warren's suggestion. Perhaps others
will speak up too if it is something up for democratic vote. If
it's not up for democratic vote, hail Warren!
