No, but I can see it confuses a bit. But improvements to the text (which
I use in a template) are welcome. Very much so. What I meant to say is,
take src:r-cran-processx and all it's binaries from unstable, add it to
testing and run the testsuite (in this case, from unstable).

That is not what I meant here. I agree with you that that would not be a
big issue. Nowadays, with my britney improvements, this should be only
the case with uncatched versioned dependencies or breaks/conflicts.

Ack, I think that happened also.

I don't see what you mean here even.
