Another bug that would have been caught if packages went through a boot/acceptance test
 
If you've been following updates to F14 alpha/beta, you'll undoubtedly
have been hit by:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=638091

which makes everything segfault and is unrecoverable without a live CD
and a lot of manual intervention.

A simple "does it boot" test in fact wouldn't have caught this, but a
"does it boot, then run prelink" (completely automatic as part of the
Koji build or AutoQA acceptance) would have.

You say this as if we weren't working hard to get to being able to run these tests and block builds accordingly ...
