Default bodhi abuse?

https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/phpMyAdmin-2.11.9-1.fc8
[and several other updates]

+1 acottle - 2008-08-30 08:11:54

+1 auscity - 2008-08-30 08:21:14

(David Cottle)

https://admin.fedoraproject.org/accounts/user/view/dcottle
(David Cottle, email in aus-city domain)

https://admin.fedoraproject.org/accounts/user/view/acottle

Same name and domain in email address.

If this is an attempt at trying to "autopush" updates faster
via positive karma, stop this, please.

Default bodhi abuse?

A copy of my private answer to a flood of four (!) replies I've
received after the original post:

[...]

David,

first of all, there's a question mark in the subject line. In other
words, I *ask* whether this is intended usage of bodhi, because I have
doubts that it is.

Secondly, in my opinion, it is not okay that one person opens multiple
Fedora accounts. It's not nice either because everybody else can only
spend +1/-1 karma. You don't plan to create an account for each server
and give +1 for each server, do you? Or let co-workers create many
accounts and let them spend many +1 for the same site/infrastructure?

If I find a bug in the software that affects N machines, I don't use N
accounts to give -N karma. Same for positive karma. Even if test
results depend on different hardware, where would this end?
One Fedora account for each machine with different hardware?

In case there are no rules yet, it's about time to create some.

this should be taken up with FESCo not here.

since the request was to stable it was a pointless attempt. but it should
be looked at

Default bodhi abuse?

Yes, I have seen many of these on my and other updates. It's quite
annoying to me that someone would try to do that. I mean, if you
really want an update and you've tested it, contact the maintainer and
make a request. But creating fake accounts just to bump karma is only
going to force people to consider disabling the karma mechanism. And
if that was the end goal, why not just start a discussion about it?

We can make this a policy and disable the accounts if we feel thats
needed.
