    On a somewhat minor case/example will be curious to see what happens when you upload nautilus-3.6.1, as it stands now it will (re)break some previously fixed focus issues in Unity

    That's what many here should be doing now

    Point taken. We embrace testing-version too soon and do not participate in that part of cycle...
    I'm sorry to admit that we've been talking about that at least previous two times, but... No excuses, from me at least...

    I've got proposed enabled, and I'll keep it that way until it blows my system away

    But because the migration from proposed is automatic and fast (it may be a 1 hour delay, but it depends on how long it takes all architectures to build), reporting a bug in -proposed won't stop the migration.

    I do plan to upload Nautilus 3.6.1 when the archives open. Have you filed those bugs yet or are you going to wait for it to actually land first?

    Let me see if I understand this correctly. The concern is that the packages build correctly and not that the package contains bugs that will break the install once they are integrated?

    OK. That's why we are here. That's why you need us.

    Yes, -proposed for the development cycle is only to fix the temporary uninstallability problem, where packages haven't built on all architectures. In the future, failing to pass automated tests can also block the automated migration from -proposed. More details in Colin's email.

    So if you want to fix problems before they hit the development release, it sounds like learning how to write automated tests would be useful.

    No, not yet, was waiting for it to show in repo. It came up the other night when I was testing some builds by Dmitry to fix the segfault in nautilus-3.6.1 caused by http://git.gnome.org/browse/nautilus...?id=629c9bc27a
    (I thought he CC'ed you on the issue & progression of fixes?

    So the final fix was to revert 21_correct_timestamp_use_fix_focus_issue.patch
    This causes no issue in GS, but brings back in Unity
    (there was a small gtk patch that fixed All focus issues inc. nautilus but it was rejected in favor of the 21 patch

    So here, for the moment have applied a gtk fix for using 3.6.1 & 3.7.1 in a unity session

    (3.7.1 has a nice fix on recursive searching, would be something to consider adding to 3.6.1 if that's the one used in 13.04, have tested just applying the 3 related commits to the gnome3 ppa source with no apparent issue yet.

    im wondering if "proposed" will be used to:
    - wait for all the dependencies been uploaded before migration of the main package

    I have one PC commited to just 'proposed' and ignoring all other quantal security updates repositories. I just want to see what happens. I did a fresh install from the Oct. 14th RC and it has not hiccupped once yet. Currently downloading some upgrades...
