Hello Colin!

Let me start off with a few quick and standard questions myself. I'm
sure those will be easy - just making sure you were looking after
those parts before.

1. After getting PPU rights for the packages I want to make sure you
would be able to follow them to the end after the upload. What could
go wrong that could cause a package to get stuck in -proposed and not
automatically migrate to the release pocket? Where would you look for
for answers?

2. An SRU-related question: when publishing an update to a stable
supported series, what information should you provide on the bug
(especially regarding regression potential)?
