Pascal is working on this.

So here is a proposal :
- anybody can submit a package to updates_testing. 
- once submitted to testing, it should ask to QA to test, along with :
  - a reason for the update ( likely bug number )
  - potentially a priority ( ie, if this is just a translation update or
a urgent 0 day exploit ) 
  - a way to test the bug and see it is fixed
  - text for the update 

- qa validate the update ( with process to define )

- someone move the package from updates_testing to testing 
- the bug is closed
- a announce is sent ( on various medias to be defined ), with the text
of update 

So the points are : 
- no update can be uploaded without QA validation
- QA manage the checks, and so will requires help ( hence the security
team or any packager can help, provided they know how to do QA )
