But we do have a bo-updates directory where packages can be
well-tested before being integrated.  With rex, I would install
packages directly to rex-fixed, and that was a mistake.

Packages move from incoming to bo-updates to bo.  I will release a new
version of bo whenever the testing committee tells me that the
packages are ok.

If you're a new developer, and have nothing to do, I invite you to
confirm that the packages in bo-updates are ok.
