That argument is valid for all 11k packages in TW; once installed,
it breaks in TW, an upgrade of said package will be tough. Still, I
hope you're not suggesting to add 11k packages to the rings and try
stage stuff with.

Maybe I am misinterpreting the purpose of rings, but isn't

"unresolvable"; done

Very much not - no... you'd not see a release ever.. there is at leats
one broken package in the distro at any given time. The rings scope is
the DVD installer at this moment. That said, we don't object other
stuff to the ring - if there is a common issue with it.

But adding stuff when it's broken is a bad time to do it.

doable as a trivial test? It can't possibly take more than a day to
run through

Installability tests are performed - and recorded...

Happy fixing all of them - I'm awaiting submissions
