Am I the target group? :-)
I just QA'd a package and tried out giving
it a first-review attachment. I think it's significantly different than
the current approach and marginally more work.
Thanks for trying! I've noticed, too, that creating an attachment and
changing the bugzilla keywords line are separate steps. And someone who
submitted the second-review would need three steps (attach, change status,
change keywords). Personally, I wouldn't mind the extra step for setting
the attachment status. But that's why feedback is needed.
E.g. I like how attachments solve the problem of invalidated GPG
signatures (I haven't had any of those myself, though).
I think a new keyword is a simpler solution that gets us the bare
essentials of what we want.
Votes on what keyword to try are still taken. REVIEWED has been
preferred, it seems.
I've thought about another keyword like ON_QA as a silent indicator from
someone adding himself to the "Cc" field that he's planned to review the
package. Of course, a short comment would be sufficient, albeit not
Btw, I think there ought to be more communication between packagers and
reviewers anyway, so a packager doesn't apply severe modifications while a
reviewer is checking the current release.
