That's only when there is a release near ( ie, after the distribution is
branched ), or for update. Not for general developpement in rawhide. And
there isn't much participation to that, if we look at

I do not think we should aim for a completely bug free distribution on
cauldron, as this would just push everything to updates-testing, which
in turn would just add another layer, and make thing more complex. If
there is risk of bug somewhere, some people will avoid it, no matter
what we do.
