16 That is under the assumption that such suspension is permanent as well
17 as that QA is the only judge. However, most mentioned suspensions
18 there are temporary and QA needs to bring forward reasoning as to why
19 QA has requested the temporary suspension; the final judge here is the
20 Gentoo Council just like with ComRel's suspensions.
22 QA really is just a party here and has nearly no final power when it
23 comes to judging or execution; the goal here is to deal with
24 the rather unusual bigger breakages, but if this doesn't go through QA
25 can just forward the request to ComRel and have them consider and do it.
27 This patch just came up by a hypothetical discussion where QA was given
28 the impression that QA has the power to request this; some of the
29 Council meetings back in history seem to approve this patch, others do
30 not. It's a rather odd history, and hence we set things straight here.
32 It is more of a "Do we want QA to delegate this through ComRel or not?".
