Proposed and major updates policy


Currently the usage of updates-testing repository for proposed updates to a release is entirely based on the package maintainer and in many cases seems to be arbitrary for the end users. Can we have a policy to ensure to that all the updates have a week or so of testing period in the updates-testing repository with the exception of security updates which go through a shorter duration of testing?. It might also be better to have some consistency in between providing updates for major revisions of packages. KDE got a major update while GNOME and Firefox didnt in Fedora Core 4 as an example of current status.

While the current amount of feedback that we receive from end users on the packages in updates-testing repository is low to non existent, it would be better to encourage usage of that and provide interested testers a chance to send in feedback rather than releasing it immediately to the updates repository leading to potential regressions more rapidly.
