I can't see the point in doing additional paperwork for bugfix-only
which will automatically get accepted either.  I raised objections while
I was away,
and they were either misunderstood, or ignored.  As the others had no
with it, I suspect that the majority vote was taken.  So this is what
we're stuck with.

Me too.  Like i say, I raised objections to it during the discussions,
and they were
ignored.  Because I disagree, should i then go and ignore the rules, and
turn a blind
eye to anyone else doing the same?  If that is the case, then what
exactly is the point
of having a MOTU Release team, if it does not have the power over what
does, and does
not get uploaded?

After seeing multiple complaints about this new system, i'd suggest
bringing it up at the MOTU
meeting, but as I am in the MOTU release minority on this issue, my
hands are somewhat tied.
