Re: [Ubuntu Wiki] Update of "StableReleaseUpdates" by xnox

I would also prefer not to see those in the description, especially
that we'll have automated bug comments on autopkgtest regressions

That being said, I don't think someone not part of the SRU team should
be editing the SRU tempate without discussion with the SRU team. Can
we get this change reverted and at least have a discussion started
about it? If we allow anyone updating the SRU process as they see fit,
soon we'll have no official documentation and more people will be
