Huh? It's pretty fundamental to the way the entire system works...
You _can't_ determine whether something is ready for testing/stable
unless it's been tested by a wide audience -- which is what unstable is
Of course, I think most people agree that you shouldn't put bug-ridden
packages into unstable -- you're not going to learn much, and you'll
probably do more harm than good (unless the old version is even _more_
bug-ridden :-) -- however there's clearly a lot of latitude for putting
in packages which _seem_ to work well, but which you're not entirely
As always, it's a judgement call, but so far DDs seem to have have done
a good job.
