How do we handle reverting packages in the devel release that introduce regressions?

2012-10-29 16:15..17:00 in B3-M7

We've talked about reverting uploads as a tool for correcting regressions in the development release. This practice has not been adopted as widely as it probably should be. Discuss the reasons and come up with clear policies on when reverting is the right answer (as well as when it isn't), so we can act on these policies quickly and with confidence, minimizing development velocity lost across the team.
