Default Updates QA/karma question

Another update issue that raises some questions -

- Does anyone actually read the comments in bodhi before allowing the
push request to proceed?

Case in point:

================================================== ==============================
================================================== ==============================
Update ID: FEDORA-2008-10000

: problems.

Causes nfs statd to fail at bootup

Needs selinux changes. Fails to start with selinux
steved - 2008-12-09 18:59:31 (karma 1)
selinux-policy-targeted-3.3.1-115.fc9 is now available
which does take care of the Selinux problem. Please up
update and try again...

This update has been submitted for stable
orion - 2008-12-10 16:12:46 (karma -1)
This should not be pushed to stable until selinux-
policy-targeted-3.3.1-115.fc9 has been pushed to
bodhi - 2008-12-11 07:58:07 (karma 0)
This update has been pushed to stable


- Should update submitters be allowed to give positive karma to their
updates? Seems like that they are too biased.

- Is there any requirement that an update have positive karma before
being pushed to stable?

As of now, rpcbind will fail to start on F-9 with selinux in enforcing
mode (esp. important on servers!) until
selinux-policy-targeted-3.3.1-115.fc9 is pushed to stable. Seems like
we could have waited for that.

Dec 12 09:16:11 xenf9 yum: Updated: rpcbind-0.1.7-1.fc9.i386
Dec 12 09:18:21 xenf9 rpcbind: rpcbind terminating on signal. Restart
with "rpcbind -w"
Dec 12 09:18:21 xenf9 rpcbind: setgid to 'rpc' (32) failed: Operation
not permitted
Dec 12 09:18:21 xenf9 kernel: type=1400 audit(1229098701.631:5): avc:

tcontext=unconfined_u:system_r:rpcbind_t:s0 tclass=capability

We really need to work on this updates system.
