Fedora Updates can be revised

Tuesday, December 8th, 2009

Fedora package developers very often submit a test update for a package, get some feedback on it, then submit another test update incorporating further fixes.  This resets the “karma” back to zero, as well as making search results for packages in the Fedora Update system very cluttered.

Did you know that you can edit an existing test update?  Doing this keeps the list of fixed bugs, keeps any user comments about the update, and keeps the karma from previous testing.

Edit

After clicking Edit, make your changes but be sure to choose Testing or Stable for the Request field.
