Is it a lack of ideas or that the current software imposes hurdles?
A little of both. The current software poses hurdles, and it's lack of
ideas to work around those hurdles without making significant change to
the software in question.
Packages moved from testing to stable would need some sort of
"expiration date". A period of time they stay tagged with
dist-*-updates-testing in addition to being tagged with dist-*-updates.
Untagging them from updates-testing and removing them from the repo
way before they appear in the updates repo instead, is bad. It also
causes broken dependencies temporarily. Those make testing less fun
and lead to confusion when spending karma in bodhi.
The best idea we've come up with yet is to have bodhi /not/ untag a
build from dist-f??-updates-testing when it moves to stable, and instead
have the mash process that composes dist-f?? do the untagging, or use
something outside of either of those to periodically check packages in
dist-f14-updates-testing and dist-f14 and clean things out of
dist-f14-updates-testing that are on the public repo.
