Okay. Thanks for explaining this.

Whow! Now that is a great explanation. We started testing for a reason. If
all of us think that way we can as well stop using testing at all, as it
will only contain packages from the old stable and some that are just
developing to slowly to remain in quarantine.

I think the ide was to constantly work on the new stable release. To do that
we have to keep testing in the mix. Why isn't it possible to move 1.0-2
after one week even though 1.0-3 exists in unstable?
