I'm sending this IRC snippet (my question on #ubuntu-motu) was after reading 
the above mail?

[15:49] <ScottK> geser: Please tell me you didn't upload a fix to 
gutsy-proposed that you haven't verified works (that's what I get from your 
mail to the MOTU list)?
[15:50] <geser> ScottK: I didn't check the package myself
[15:50] <ScottK> geser: Did you upload it?
[15:50] <geser> yes
[15:50] <geser> ScottK: that patch comes from upstream
[15:51] * ScottK sort of thought testing before uploading would have been a 
good idea?

I'd like a clarification of policy here (I've thought I knew for sure the 
right answer and been wrong before).  I thought SRUs were supposed to be 
tested before uploading to *-proposed.  Is that wrong?
