Quoting Steve Langasek (firstname.lastname@example.org): > This is far below the quality I expect from a mass bug filing that's been > reviewed by debian-devel. Mass bugfilings at RC severity need to be held to Even though I overread the thread when Dmitry posted his intent to -devel, I feel like there was *no* strong agreement that this MBF was really wished and welcomed. I should also have added that I personnally strongly object to it for three reasons: - timing wrt the release - timing wrt the "half of the developers are VAC" status we generally have in August - the obvious lack of preparation It may sound like acting against the "we will not hide problems" item in the Social Contract, but I wouldn't be shocked if *all* these RC bugs are downgraded to important (I would even downgrade them to wishlist, see the example that made Neil react). If I come on any such bug on packages I maintain or co-maintain, I will immediately downgrade the bug report in such way, mentally thanking the bug submitter for the extra work and ranting about yet another nice method to delay the release.
