How old a fetch should be before I consider it old? A week? A day?
One hour? What is the expected trade-off between the value attached to
having a bug reported, and the burden on pretesters? Some of us, like me,
are usually not connected to the Internet, and I would just not report a
bug if the required work on me is too high, while possibly being useless.
For the packages I maintain, I always accept bug reports from my pretesters.
If I think they should fetch a newer pretest, I may ask them to do so, but
on a case per case basis. I would not blindly impose them to go and fetch
a new pretest just for being allowed to report a bug. I value pretesters'
reports much more than that.
