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

So is there some more example guidance with this?
For example I have a new release of the game colossus, that has some rule
bugfixes. One for the balrog variant seems to be important to people playing
that variant. Is this the kind of thing that should get tagged for F12
before release?
I think what I am looking for is if it is worth trying to get minor fixes
into F12 release for a package with is not a dependency for other things.

If it isn't on the critical path list, just be careful you aren't breaking anything. Sounds like this particular package isn't a risk. Might be helpful to mention in your rel-eng ticket.

What if the package is already tagged for F12 updates testing?
In the case I am interested in, I have already requested updates-testing
for the package in F12. If it is still OK to tag it for F12 final, do
I need to do anything extra in bohdi?

Rel-eng is currently discussing what to do about the F12 update bodhi requests. Some of us believe we enabled bodhi far too early and this is needlessly confusing people. My own opinion is that queuing for updates at this point is detrimental to testing, because we will have a huge flood of packages hitting updates on release day that had almost zero testing.

For now don't worry about what you did in Bodhi. It seems the Bodhi update requests are not going anywhere for the next few weeks.
