QA policy is to try and recreate the bug, if possible, in order to confirm
that the update fixes the bug it claims to fix.

We also test that the primary functions of the package works.  For example,
in an update for unetbootin https://bugs.mageia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1443
the update did what it stated it would do, by invoking consolehelper,
but the package didn't work.  It wasn't a regression, but as the packages
main feature didn't work, the update was not accepted until it was fixed.

Every update is treated on a case by case basis, as to what testing will
be done, taking into account things such as the impact it will have on
inexperienced users if a problem does get pushed to updates.

Something like a game, will get minimal testing.  Something like
packagekit-command-not-found, which could seriously break a system
will get extensive testing, and will be blocked until it is safe
to use.
