I'd prefer it was tested for functionality, but sometimes that just isn't going to happen, and this may be one of those times. But anyone can test that it installs without problems, so we should at least do that much.Either way, I think the packages which aren't tested in months (xchat and squid also belong in the same category) call for one of the following:1) officially forgetting the update, removing it from updates-testing, and from the issue lists 2) specially marking "QA still needed but these are very low priority" updates, or 3) just releasing them with lower amount of QA or no QA at all after some timeout (e.g., 6 weeks) and revising if someone complains it doesn't work right.As it is, the problem is that the bug issue lists keep getting longer, not shorter. We should be able to get "rid of" historic and minor updates using some means.I don't have strong preference here, but I think 3) would probably be best. If no-one wants to do (official) QA, we could just release the update if it looks trivial, and fix it later if something is reported to break.
