It could be more productive to spend -1 karma points in the Fedora
Updates System on any test-update that is unstable or causes regression.
Especially if the -1 vote is joined with a link to a bugzilla ticket.
Integration testing isn't trivial. For some time there have been troubles
with GPGME and an upgrade of GnuPG 2.

The latest gnupg2 update has seen +2 karma points, which (unfortunately)
was sufficient for the low requirements given by the maintainer:

Btw, the Update System has been upgraded recently (to something that looks
less clear and concise as earlier), so I cannot comment on it further.
