One more call for discussion around another proposal that came out of
Toronto. Short version of this is that we'd consider slowing down updates a
step, esp for the second half of a fedora release's lifetime, and to limit
kde 4.x-type upgrades to at most 1 per release.
Whatever we decide, increasing our transparency by documenting our update
practices will hopefully help shape everyone''s plans and expectations. As
it is, seems these vary wildly.
I'm in favor of the proposal (I'd even argue for less updates...).
However, I think it would be important to lobby upstream for more bug
fix releases or some other method for distributions to more easily
consume bug fixes into released packages.
