The decisions about which packages "we can live without" are not
immediately obvious. There are a large number of pacages on the RCB list
that haven't been fixed for months and which I wouldn't loose sleep
over. Other packages are targeted immediately after they get a bug
report. If there were a harder line, and more packages were targeted, I
think it would be more fair. As it stands, the process seems very
arbitrary.
