Re: testing to be implemented on ftp-master

Hi Anthony,

when testing is woody, have you thought of how to resolve problems like
the following:

The important security fix is only in the package in unstable but not in
testing (and the bug report was closed with the upload to unstable).

The version in testing might be older than the version in stable (if you
e.g. upload a new package for 2.2r3 and the package from unstable never
makes it into testing).

Such things might e.g. be caused if you do a new upload of your package
every week - so one package is never 14 days in unstable and a new version
never makes it into testing.


A "No" uttered from deepest conviction is better and greater than a
"Yes" merely uttered to please, or what is worse, to avoid trouble.
