A decision was finally taken yesterday during packager meeting : we would like 
to change MageiaUpdate's behaviour, but before this is done we have to copy 
the dependencies from Core Release to Core Updates.

What hasn't been decided is whether the packager must submit to 
updates_testing or the sysadmin copy the package from Core Release to Core 
Updates. Can we decide it quickly so that the pending updates can be validated 

Best regards
