Thanks for the drafts.
I hesitate whether we should mandate working updates in live environment:
Installing anything else than just a few small packages usually doesn't work at all,
because you run out of allocated disk overlay memory (which seems to happen very soon even
for systems with large amounts of physical RAM). The question is whether we want this to
work "in a reasonable degree" (small updates), or whether we don't want to
require it on Live at all.
I'm not completely happy about the wording of:
" This criterion does apply to live environments. However, a stricter standard of
judgement may be applied to conditional violations in live environments, as clean shutdown
and log out functionality is relatively less important on a live boot than an installed
For example logout is necessary if you want to switch languages (and our l10n test days
rely on that). Reboot and shutdown is necessary for automating stuff. I'd use the same
measure as in post-install here.
