Reminder: Tagging Policy for Fedora 12

This is just a reminder about the tagging policy for packages built for Fedora 12 past the development freeze.

What Qualifies for Tagging?
* You must have tested the build yourself. Great shame to be bestowed if you break things so close to the release! Great Shame!
* http://wwoods.fedorapeople.org/files/critical-path/deplist.txt
Anything on the critical path list requires two votes from Fedora release engineering. Critical path is loosely defined as packages that can break the ability to install or update. Typically rel-eng might do some sanity tests of your package as well, but don't count on them to find non-obvious issues. * Anything not on the critical path list can be approved by release engineering with a single vote.
* You DID test it right?

Many Builds Not Tagged, but Probably Should Be
# koji list-tagged --latest dist-f12-updates-candidate
This command shows over 400 packages are built for F-12 but not tagged for release.
Currently there are 270+ packages in the pending queue to become Fedora 12 updates. Many if not all of the packages requested update at this point probably belong tagged into rawhide immediately. Requesting it for updates at this point is problematic because you miss out on several weeks of testing only for it to show up as an update on day zero when Fedora 12 is released. Tagging policy might tighten up in the coming weeks then it might make sense to push as day zero updates at that point.

How to Request Tagging
Please file requests to have your post-freeze build included here. Please include the full Name-Version-Release of your build in the Summary of the ticket. To save rel-eng's time it might be helpful to mention a few other details like:

* How important is this?
* How much have you tested it?
* Is it on the critical path list?
