This is one thing I suspect is being lost in all the talk about trust 
and freedom. Maintainer's freedom doesn't mean much if there is a 
avalanche of updates where updates-testing time can be reduced or 
skipped any time and where every update increases the chances of 
breaking stuff

Anyone wants to write a policy on updates?
