Hello everyone,

As part of our continuing improvements to the SRU process, we have
decided to require verification-done-RELEASE and
verification-failed-RELEASE tags for bug validation instead of their
broad versions (i.e. verification-done, verification-failed). This
means that for a bug to be considered validated, testers need to tag
the bug with a verification-done-RELEASE tag where RELEASE is the
stable release name of the upload you have been testing. Same goes for
the case of verification failure.

This will make the SRU team's job easier as now it will be instantly
clear which series have been tested in case of multi-release uploads.
It will also be easier for members of the SRU Verification Team to
tell which tasks still need testing when looking at or searching for
bugs in Launchpad.

We have modified all existing verified SRU bugs to follow the
recommended notation. The StableReleaseUpdates wiki page has also been
modified as per the new guidelines [1]. Please remember that for new
bugs the verification-done tag is not enough to mark the package as
being good for release.



On behalf of the Stable Release Updates team,
