We've always had the rule of thumb that packagers should not vote for
their own updates. It is assumed that the packagers test their own updates
and don't need to be explicit about their confidence in the update with
karma points in bodhi.
One goal of the update acceptance criteria for pre-releases is also that
_anyone_ gets an opportunity to try out a test-update before it is marked
Anyway, I think I've seen counted "self-votes" also for older dists, but not
done by many packagers.
