Thanks for the feedback Michael!
Have you been in touch with Will directly on these points?
No. Is all of this talked about only in private mail or behind other
curtains? IRC/hallways/meetings only? No public mailing-list?
I used to be a subscriber of fedora-qa-list but it has been shut
down very early. Recent documents point to fedora-test-list instead.
I know a lot
of work has gone into improving the existing tests ... I'm not sure if
it addresses your points though.
Well, the Rawhide broken dep report has switched to repoclosure, too
(dunno when exactly, though) and also doesn't handle Obsoletes (which is
the reason why it missed the synce-serial/synce-hal problem e.g.). So,
clearly that is one of the roadblocks before the autoqa-results could
be submitted to the packagers. And if bodhi will ever check for broken
deps in update transactions, it will also need to get it right.
